Simple EtherCAT Slave Interface for PCs

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.

Applications

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 and protocols

Configuration is done through the esd EtherCAT master. A sample device description file (ESI) is provided.

Software Support

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.
