EtherCAT slaves

Logo KPA EtherCAT Boards

koenig-pa GmbH offers EtherCAT slaves modules to integrate EtherCAT network with other network(s). Depending on the physical interface KPA EtherCAT board is attached to or installed in a Control PC. Therefore the Control PC with its network is represented to an EtherCAT master as a regular slave device.

KPA PC104 Interface Boards (EtherCAT slave with PC104 interface) integrate a PC 104 system into an EtherCAT network.

Hardware

  • ET 1100 ASIC, no CPU for closer synchronization
  • Polling and IRQ-handling
  • 8 kByte PDO, 8 FMMUs, 8 Sync Managers
  • DMA – support
  • Transfer rate of 2 MByte/s using DMA and IRQ
  • Software-configurable I/O address
  • Two address switches for position independent addressing

KPA EtherCAT Slave Stack

  • Support of multiple boards within one system
  • Various Operating Systems (OS):
    INtime, Linux, RTX, QNX, Windows-CE, -7, xPC Target
  • Several mailbox protocols CoE, EoE, FoE, SoE, VoE
  • Distributed Clocks
