New Product Announcement

EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) is a high performance and very efficient Ethernet-based fieldbus system applicable for various types of devices in the industrial network systems. Thanks to these advantages, it is one of the most widely adopted industrial Ethernet technologies, and has gradually become a standard communication interface in the industrial field. Responding to the increasing demand for EtherCAT, we are releasing a new iR Series EtherCAT communication coupler, iR-ECAT, to facilitate integration of iR Series I/O modules into EtherCAT applications.

iR-ECAT connecting iR Series I/O modules works as an EtherCAT slave, which allows control by EtherCAT master controllers simply after importing the ESI (EtherCAT Slave Information file) description file of the iR-ECAT. Being compliant to ETG5001, convenient to configure, and easy-to-use, iR-ECAT is a powerful tool for integrating EtherCAT systems in the industrial automation industry.
