OMRON introduces the Overview for EtherCAT.
Network Solutions for Control Automation Technology. Achieving "high-speed and high-precision" machine control through the world’s highest level network solution.
EtherCAT, which can execute motion control in realtime, realizes high capacity communication required for field networks among a large number of nodes, while maintaining the high-speed synchronous-communication through its preeminent communication performance. As an inter-system network that eliminates the barrier between motion networks and field networks, EtherCAT will contribute not only to a reduction of design works but also to a shortening of takt times.
