EtherCAT Solution

Advantech’s EtherCAT solution, includes master cards and slave modules, to precisely synchronize the motion of multiple-axis and deliver high speed data via an enhanced I/O capability. EtherCAT Servo drives and an Advantech ADAM-5000/ECAT I/O system with multiple DIO and AIO slave modules can be directly connected to the PCI-1203, master card, to communicate in real-time using the EtherCAT protocol.

    • ARC1080

      Outperformed other high performance motion cards, the ARC1040/ARC1080 features EtherCAT protocol and CNC control kernel, which supports G/M code and may easily achieve multi-axis synchronous control at CNC level. The ARC1040/ARC1080 is applicable to every machinery and automation equipment, and its built-in PLC function allows customers to control I/O with ladder diagram. With IPC embedded with powerful and excellent ARC1040/ARC1080 real-time controller, customers are able to independently develop all the functions and shorten their developing time.

    • PCI-1203

      The PCI-1203 is a 2-port EtherCAT PCI Universal card. It is a ready-to-use EtherCAT development platform for all PC-based industrial automation. The EtherCAT protocol stack is executed autonomously on the PCI card. It allows the host to handle up to two EtherCAT networks with extremely short cycle time for Motion and pure I/O applictions. For EtherCAT motion port, communication cycle time is no more than 500 μs for connecting 32 axes of servo motors and for fast I/O ports the cycle time is no more than 200us in a high speed I/O system. There are 4 - channel isolated digital outputs and 8 - channel isolated inputs on the PCI-1203 to meet the extra high speed I/O requirements. Real-time and high-precision capability are features of PCI-1203. In addition, all Advantech motion controllers use the "Common Motion API" architecture which is a unified user programming interface and graphical utility. This architecture saves application maintenance and upgrades. Programmers can benefit from using any Advantech SoftMotion controller without changing large amounts of the application code. User-friendly examples decrease programming load, helping users complete configuration and diagnosis easily.
