Network Communications

EtherCAT (CoE) Communications Reference

  • High Speed Deterministic Digital Network
  • Open Protocol (
  • Adheres to the CANopen device profile (CiA402)
  • 30 W to 55 kW Output
  • Single Phase: 100/115V; 220/230V Three Phase: 200/230V; 380/480V
  • Variety of different system architectures (cascade, line, star, ring)
  • Distributed clock for synchronized operation. The transmission delay that is set to each slave as offset synchronizes perfectly.
