EtherCAT P

EtherCAT P is an amendment of the physical layer of EtherCAT. I allows to provide 2 x 24V and EtherCAT communication on the same 4-wire cable.

This draft specification reflects the current state of the technology definition: it is ongoing work. Every effort is taken to advance the specification into a release version as quickly as possible. Thus the draft specification is not recommended as sole basis for product implementation. Instead, as of now EtherCAT P developers are encouraged to make use of application note documentation.

EtherCAT P products require a license, which is available free of charge from Beckhoff Automation. Please contact licensing@beckhoff.com.
