EtherCAT Slave

EtherCAT® Slave Stack

Easy and Fast EtherCAT Slave Device Development

  • The source code is written in ANSI-C, optimized for embedded targets with respect to performance and resource usage.

  • An API based interface provides a clear separation between application and stack which makes a later change to an updated stack revision or different hardware easy.

  • Dynamic object dictionary, completely changeable during runtime.

Services for EtherCAT Compliant Communication acc. to IEC and Mailbox Protocols Supported

  • In combination with an EtherCAT Slave Controller (ECS) all services for an EtherCAT compliant communication are provided according to IEC 61158/ETG.1000

  • Supports CoE, EoE, FoE and VoE mailbox protocols

Easily Operated Application Programming

  • All protocol complexity and hardware dependance is hidden: The developer can concentrate on application development which significantly reduces the time to market.

  • Supports multiple ESC by one application.

  • Source code version is based on a well defined Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) to adapt the stack to the target hardware with as little effort as possible.
