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 it’s technology with EtherCAT G. TSN is maturing and EtherCAT is already adapted to support the future of this technology.

To provide a better understanding of these topics, EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) will present an informative series of EtherCAT Information Days seminars throughout the United States and Canada. These full-day educational events are free of charge and a great chance to get access to EtherCAT technology.
