EtherCAT® is a very flexible real-time Ethernet protocol for industrial applications and is described by the IEC 61158 standard. Data exchange takes place according to the "processing on the fly" principle with minimal delay. This makes EtherCAT an optimal solution for Ethernet-based industrial controllers with many distributed I/Os and achieves cycle times below 100 µs.
ECX-EC, Module for cummunication between 2, independent EtherCAT networks with, slave in- and out-port per network, as, well as an Ethernet interface for, Ethernet over Ethernet (EoE). The, housing can be mounted on a DIN rail., Manual, ESI file and EtherCAT Workbench, (test version) are included.
