EtherCAT and EtherCAT P Slave Implementation Guide

The ETG.2200 EtherCAT and EtherCAT P Slave Implementation Guide describes the first steps with EtherCAT when starting an EtherCAT slave implementation and consists of three parts:

  • Section I deals with principal aspects of an EtherCAT slave implementation. Chapter 1 provides a brief EtherCAT technology background focusing the slave. In chapter 2 the implementation steps for a slave device are described, containing slave implementation criteria and a list of useful tools. Exemplary implementation notes are given here, too. Chapter 3 describes support which is provided by the EtherCAT Technology Group.
  • Section II contains device specific descriptions for further implementation aspects. An overview to available evaluation boards is given in chapter 1. Following is a list of available EtherCAT Communication Modules in chapter 2, and EtherCAT Slave Controllers (ESCs) in chapter 3.
  • Section III gives an overview of the EtherCAT enhancement “EtherCAT P”, including all related implementation topics.

The EtherCAT Device Protocol Poster describes the main principles of EtherCAT, the frame structure and its processing in the EtherCAT Slave Controller (ESC). It provides details about used registers and objects, regarding the logical ESC units. It is aimed to support the developer during the development process and provide a convenient access to further information about the respective specification by giving a structured and practical overview.
