EC-Master EtherCAT Master Stack (Acontis Technologies GmbH)
The EtherCAT Master Stack is designed and optimized to run on different embedded (real time) operating systems. Already existing implementations are available e.g. for VxWorks, On Time RTOS-32, Windows CE, QNX and Windows XP. Using the source code the EtherCAT master stack can easily be ported on other embedded operating systems.
Ready-to-run for VxWorks, VxWorks SMP, Windows XP/CE, On Time RTOS-32, RTX and for the KUKA Windows real-time extensions. Modular design, individual adjustments are easy to implement. Together with our services you get professional partnership setting up your custom control system. On request you may get the complete system integration. Reliable and robust implementation. For example, the EtherCAT Master Stack is running in the KUKA Robot Control and in the Lenze control systems.
