  • KINGSTAR Support for EtherCAT Standards
    To maintain the high standards of the EtherCAT protocol, the EtherCAT Technology Group provides a list of features for EtherCAT Master devices with a defined set of functionalities. KINGSTAR EtherCAT provides a subset of these functions for its motion control platform.
  • Comparison of EtherCat and Profinet
    EtherCAT and PROFINET are both real-time Ethernet-based fieldbuses that are used in industrial automation applications. Both protocols have 100Mbps baud rate, and use Ethernet as the base layer in the communications stack, which has around 2000 bytes per transaction.
  • Understanding the Core Features of EtherCAT Fieldbus
    EtherCAT applies Ethernet applications for automation that require short data cycle times with minimal communication delays and reduced hardware costs. The functional goal of EtherCAT is to not target to a single specific node but instead, transmit messages from one node(also known as slave
  • Benefits of the EtherCAT Network for Motion Control
    Modern motion control requires resources from different open source libraries, imaging devices, smart cameras and more. All these accessories and locations must be within reach and have access to be viable. With an EtherCAT network, these resources are easily found and stored within reach
  • EtherCAT Soft Motion Control Auto-Configuration
    EtherCAT is a very flexible protocol. It allows. connection of I/O modules, motor, drives,. communication devices, couplers and even. controllers. For each hardware type, there are. different data exchange methods.
  • Controlling Hexapod 6-DOF Alignment Robots via EtherCAT (R)
    The latest generation of PI hexapod controllers with integrated EtherCAT interface now make it very easy for users to integrate hexapods into automation systems without the need for to perform challenging kinematic transformations.
  • Everything You Need to Know about CANOpen over EtherCAT
    and device can be integrated or leveraged with EtherCAT to enable engineers to experience the most deterministic response from all Ethernet systems used in industrial processes. To gain a better understanding of this communication protocol and device, it is important to look into the features.
  • EtherCAT (R): Ethernet for Control Automation Technology and its Advantages for Precision Motion Systems
    EtherCAT (R): Ethernet for Control Automation Technology and its Advantages for Precision Motion Systems
  • 5 RTOS Performance Compared on EtherCAT Master - IntervalZero's RTX/RTX64 Stands Out
    The KINGSTAR Soft Motion platform supports multiple industry-leading EtherCAT Masters to guarantee that devices from different manufacturers can work together seamlessly. The centralized controller architecture provided by an EtherCAT Master ensures all of the benefits of EtherCAT technology, like
  • EtherCAT Performance Combined with Industry Leading DAQ: 5 Benefits You're Missing Out On
    We have compiled a list of the 5 most significant benefits of using an EtherCAT-based data acquisition system. If you're not already familiar with EtherCAT, prepare to be enlightened. If you're among the many engineers that use EtherCAT in your testing lab then you can consider this a confirmation
  • EtherCAT (R) on Sitara TM AM335x ARM (R) Cortex TM-A8 Microprocessors
    Texas Instruments is world's first semiconductor company to license EtherCAT technology and integrate it into the Sitara AM335x ARM generation of ARM Cortex-A8-based microprocessors (MPUs). This whitepaper explores implementation of this technology on the AM335x processor through its programmable
  • Three Reasons to Love EtherCAT
    My wife and I are very similar people in a lot of ways but also dissimilar in other ways. One specific aspect in which we could not be any more different is our taste in food. At work, I often like to pick up food from one of my favorite nearby taco joints. A typical order includes three or four
