Industrial Ethernet and EtherCAT, in particular, are hot topics in the global automation industry: Traditional fieldbus systems are showing their limitations today as new fieldbus technologies are appearing that promise to provide higher performance and more support for Internet protocols. Automation system users have to decide if, when and how to adopt these next-generation networks. EtherCAT is advancing its technology with EtherCAT G.

To provide a better understanding of these topics, EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) will present an informative series of EtherCAT events throughout Australia. These half-day morning seminars are free of charge and a great chance to get access to the EtherCAT technology.
