Press release from: Kithara Software GmbH

The steerings of the company Hundegger Maschinenbau GmbH are based on EtherCAT and they use the Realtime- Master from Kithara Software, which proofs itself again as a specialist for realtime-communiaction solutions.
More and more industrial enterprises rebuild their control technology and change their conventional field bus systems into innovative realtime-ethernet-solutions like for example EtherCAT. In order to reconvert the system Kithara Software supplies essential function libaries with highly precision time stamps. The developer benefit from a slender, demand-oriented programming. They can master it down to the last detail and make modifications themselves, not like a black box.
The precision lies in the area of several kilohertz and the ethernet-communication will be supportet for fast- and gigabit- transfer rates and also supports UDP TCP. The preemptive MultiTasking ensures that the PC-based EtherCAT-Master operates at highly precedence rating. For this reason the Software is the ideal tool for all developers who realize realtime-ethernet or rather EtherCAT-solutions.
Just like the development engineers of Hans Hundegger Maschinenbau GmbH, the world market leader concerning fully automated, computer-operated machines. Through long-time positive experiences with the realtime-timer-functions of the »RealTime Suite« Hundegger Maschinenbau GmbH still relies on the innovative technologies of Kithara and has converted the control units for EtherCAT.
The high flexible machinery is sawing, milling, drilling, planing and transporting fully automated and is producing at the same time almost variable prefabricated parts from the substance wood.
The whole connection for these complex and high-precision manufacture is processed over the realtime-ethernet-access time-critical in the control system computer and the Paket Gigabit Module assume the actually IP-data communication.
Kithara Software shows with this example, that the »RealTime Suite« complies highest requirements on innovative technology, flexibility and solidity in the area of the industrial automation.

Kithara Software GmbH
The company Kithara Software GmbH located in Berlin was founded in 1996 and has become a specialist for hardware dependent programming, real-time, multitasking and communication solutions for the Windows operating systems.
Simply applicable function libaries allow programmers the development of real-time solutions for Ethernet, automation with EtherCAT, real-time CAN as well as PCI and USB hardware access.
