ICP DAS ECAT-M801 series of EtherCAT master PCIe cards

Friday, 31 May, 2019 | Supplied by: ICP Electronics Australia Pty Ltd


The ECAT-M801 is a series of EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) PCIe modules from ICP DAS. EtherCAT is an open, high-performance fieldbus system that makes Ethernet technology available at the I/O level. With flexible wiring and fast communications, EtherCAT is vital for achieving a high-speed real-time network for machine control solutions.

When a set-up involves a lot of slave nodes, a good master is required. The series provides this with motion control up to 32 axes, connectivity with up to 64 slave nodes and SDO + PDO slave operation. It can provide multi-axis motion and I/O control functions via its own in-built CPU to reduce the load placed on the corresponding PC for maximum computational efficiency. It is also capable of multi-axis linear interpolation, 2D/3D interpolation and helical interpolation.

Modules are compatible with both slaves from ICP DAS and EtherCAT slaves from third-party sources, due to EtherCAT’s position as an industrial standard.
