What is EtherCAT?
EtherCAT is a high-performance, low-cost, easy-to-use industrial Ethernet technology with flexible topologies.
With minimal hardware and settings, EtherCAT provides users with cost savings, convenient maintenance and setup, and lightness in the overall equipment configuration.
The interface for connecting the EtherCAT Master Device (WMM3) to the EtherCAT slave requires only commercially available Rj45 Ethernet cables.
No special interface is required, but please check the list of NIC drives that support EtherCAT.
The list can be viewed through the corresponding page (NOTICE – Ethernet NIC Support List).
For more information, visit the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) website, which supports EtherCAT technology.
