esd EtherCAT slave API library and sample code for application development
This product is in end-of-life status and is not recommended for new development.
Please use the successor model ECS-PCIe/FPGA.
The ECS-PCIe/1100 is a PC board designed for PCI Express slots. It features an EtherCAT slave using the Ethernet physical layer via two RJ45 Ethernet sockets. The board uses the ET1100 EtherCAT slave controller (ESC) ASIC that comes with 8 kbytes memory and 8 EtherCAT sync managers. The ET1100 ESC address space is directly mapped to the PCI Express address space.
The ECS-PCIe/1100 integrates any PC into an EtherCAT network and makes it an EtherCAT slave node. The PC can act as I/O node. An EtherCAT master can use several EtherCAT protocols like CoE, FoE and EoE to communicate with this EtherCAT slave node.
Configuration is done through the esd EtherCAT master. A sample device description file (ESI) is provided.
Device drivers for Windows® and Linux® with documentation and EtherCAT slave examples are included in the scope of delivery. Drivers for other operating systems, especially realtime-OS, are available on request.
The product is offered with drivers for Windows and Linux, which can be downloaded free of charge.
In addition to these operating systems, various other (real-time) operating systems are also supported. Detailed information can be found in the description of our order items and, if applicable, in the accessories at the bottom of this page. For more detailed information about the availability of drivers for your operating system, please contact our sales team.
