Offerings forEtherCAT

EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) is an Ethernet based fieldbus system optimized for process data transfer within Ethernet frames. Because of the protocols short cycle times, it is widely being used in assembly (manufacturing), robotics, semiconductor tools, printing machinery, metal forming, etc. It has been designed to meet all demands for fast controlling with data integrity, data security and synchronization. The EtherCAT protocol is managed by ETG founded in 2003 and is the industrial ethernet user organization with the most members in the world today.

Utthunga offers various products and customized solutions around EtherCAT technology to its customers.

EtherCAT MASTER & CONFIGURATION TOOL

uECAT provides an industry standard EtherCAT real-time Master for Windows systems. It is extremely fast, deterministic real-time solution based on leading real-time Ethernet technology. Typical applications are real-time measurement applications and Slave testing. Core component of uECAT has the powerful EtherCAT Master Stack.
