In Review

  • EtherCAT is a very high performance, easy to deploy, open application layer protocol for Ethernet applications.
  • Synchronization capabilities and full bandwidth utilization make EtherCAT very attractive for motion applications where synchronizing large numbers of drives is required.
  • EtherCAT saves installation expense by eliminating both Ethernet star topology and all switches, routers, and hubs.
  • EtherCAT fits well in the spectrum of Ethernet application layers where performance, topology and overall deployment cost are driving factors.
