High-quality data in real-time using EtherCAT
Real-time data transmission with EtherCAT fieldbus standard
Modern test benches put high demands on real-time data transmission in automation routines and time synchronous data acquisition. The Ethernet-based EtherCAT fieldbus standard is particularly suited to these tasks - in particular if low real-time cycle times are aimed at. CX27B integrates several QuantumX modules in real-time even in a distributed way. All inputs can be monitored and analysed with data rates up to 100 kS/sec per channel with catman using Ethernet TCP/IP without influence to real-time automation jobs.
