EtherCat

EtherCAT Technology Group
 

EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) is a real-time Industrial Ethernet technology originally developed by Beckhoff Automation. The main focus during the development of EtherCAT was on short cycle times (≤ 100 µs), low jitter for accurate synchronization (≤ 1 µs) and low hardware costs.

Usage

The EtherCAT protocol which is disclosed in the IEC standard IEC61158 is suitable for hard and soft real-time requirements in automation technology, in test and measurement and many other applications.

Applications

Examples of applications employing EtherCAT:

  • Assembly systems
  • Injection molding systems
  • Measurement systems
  • Printing machines
  • Robotic systems
