This presentation is an in-depth introduction to Ethernet as a fieldbus, and specifically EtherCAT, the fastest industrial Ethernet fieldbus available, capable of updating 1000 distributed I/O in 30µs, 200 16-bit analog I/O in 50µs, or 100 servo axes in 100µs.? Its small footprint, low overhead, and open nature make it ideal for embedded applications, custom controls manufacturers, and device developers.? EtherCAT sets new standards for real-time performance and topology flexibility, while meeting or undercutting standard industrial fieldbus cost levels.? EtherCAT features include IEEE 802.3 compatibility, high precision device synchronization, a cable redundancy option, flexible topology, fiber optic or Cat5 cabling options, and a native functional safety protocol (SIL3).? EtherCAT is an international standard (IEC, ISO and SEMI).? EtherCAT is represented by the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG), the largest fieldbus organization, with over 1500 member companies from 52 countries around the world.
