EC-Engineer Web is a powerful software tool used for configuration and diagnosis of EtherCAT® networks. The software is a client server application, with the modern dark mode client user interface (UI) an Angular-CLI project communicating through a REST-API with the backend (ASP.NET Core).
The Microsoft .NET Core platform is used for development and to run the software on several operating systems and architectures, e.g. Windows, macOS and Linux (x64, ARM32). EC-Engineer Web is using the multi-platform advantage that .NET Core offers for mobility and platform independence.
Extensive diagnosis functions are available to help to analyze and solve problems in EtherCAT® networks. In this mode, EC-Engineer Web receives all necessary information from the EtherCAT® Master.
For Masters running acontis’ EC-Master, the integrated communication protocol known as RAS enables the connection to EC-Engineer Web. For Masters not running EC-Master, the Mailbox Gateway (ETG.8200) enables the connection to EC-Engineer Web, like for Beckhoff TwinCAT systems. With the Mailbox Gateway EC-Engineer Web is a completely master-independent EtherCAT diagnostic tool.
The optional Software Development Kit (SDK) enables customers to enhance and integrate EC-Engineer Web, or to create a new customized diagnosis app, e. g., for mobile devices.
