EtherCAT Master Stack from www.esd-electronics-usa.com

esd electronics, Inc. announces the release of the newest product in their EtherCAT® product line, an EtherCAT® Master software for Windows, Linux, QNX, and vxWorks.

EtherCAT® is an Ethernet-based fieldbus protocol optimized for high-speed, real-time industrial control based on a Master/Slave configuration. For instance, process data exchange with 1000 distributed digital I/O requires approximately thirty micro-seconds. Data for 100 servo axes can be updated with a frequency of up to 10 kHz. The EtherCAT® Master device requires only a standard Ethernet MAC, even without dedicated communication co-processor.

esd electronics, Inc. recently made the decision to focus on EtherCAT® in the highly competitive Ethernet technology market, and proudly announces the release of its new software product, the EtherCAT® Master Stack software for embedded operating systems. This new product will offer an opportunity for a smooth transition from established network applications into Ethernet.

Designed with respect to high performance, small resource usage and scalability, the EtherCAT® Master software has core components that are operating system (OS) and CPU architecture independent and makes a port to customer-specific application targets very easy.

The stack is available for various operating systems such as Windows, Linux, vxWorks, and QNX. Download the technical information - including datasheet and operating manual - from http://www.esd-electronics-usa.com/EtherCAT%20Master%20Stack.html at the esd electronics, Inc. web site.

In addition to the Master Software esd electronics, Inc. also offers an EtherCAT® to CAN/CANopen Gateway that allows the connection of CAN/CANopen devices to an EtherCAT® network.

For future release, esd electronics, Inc. is currently working on several EtherCAT® projects such as a Soft-PLC (IEC 61131) interface, an EtherCAT® starter kit, and a VME/PMC-EtherCAT® Master board.

For further information contact sales at 413-772-3170.

esd electronics, Inc. has over 20 years experience specializing in Controller Area Network (CAN), CANopen & DeviceNet hardware and software modules for industrial applications including motion control with extended customer support through seminars and engineering for hardware & software development.

Designed to the highest industrial standards, our hardware platforms include PCI, CompactPCI, PC104, PMC, PCIExpress, gateways to USB, Ethernet, and Profibus with components 100% compliant to the CAN 2.0 A/B standards. Our drivers and CANopen/DeviceNet APIs support most Windows, LINUX, VxWorks, and QNX versions, and we offer an IEC 61131-3 programming interface.
