C Series EtherCAT Interface Module

Enables CompactRIO systems to connect and communicate as a slave on an EtherCAT network.

The C Series EtherCAT Interface Module enables you to develop applications that connect a CompactRIO system to an EtherCAT master. EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based, real-time FOUNDATION fieldbus protocol. You can easily connect other module I/O available in the same chassis to your EtherCAT network. You can also daisy chain multiple modules installed in the same or different CompactRIO chassis to expand time-critical applications to higher channel counts while maintaining hard determinism with minimal processor resources.
