Outstanding performance, low costs, flexible topology and easy handling: these are the advantages of the industrial Ethernet technology, EtherCAT. EtherCAT provides full flexibility: a free topology selection, the possibility of connecting and disconnecting devices and segments during operation, and the performance redundancy of the ring topology.
EtherCAT is suitable for both centralized and decentralized architectures, supports Master/Slave, Master/Master, and Slave/Slave communication. It can also integrate secondary fieldbuses.
By using the existing infrastructure, the factory level is also optimally covered with the EtherCAT Automation Protocol. Preferably with out network blocks.
