An Integrated Motion Network for
High-speed and High-precision Control
APRIL 13, 2011
(ASIA PACIFIC) - Excellent for rapid and advanced machine
control, EtherCAT motion network provides high performance in
speed, expandability and also flexibility.
Increasing system performance and
startup efficiency for automation systems has become an
important design issue for value-added applications to improve
machine takt time in electronic component manufacturing
equipment, food processing machines and packaging machines.
However, high-speed and high-precision applications such as
motion control, need separate motion network and field network.
EtherCAT, an Ethernet-based network eliminates the barrier
between motion networks and field networks. It provides real
time control with its operating principles and architecture
required to achieve ultra-high-speed, synchronized control. With
its wiring-efficient bus topology, EtherCAT provides a solution
for complex wiring and reduces number of hubs and switches
required for Ethernet. Flexible communication specification also
allows a wide variety of devices to join the same network.
