EtherCAT Slave PC LabVIEW

Ackermann Automation

EtherCAT Slave PC LabVIEW helps you turn a PC into an Ethernet for Control Automation Technology (EtherCAT) slave.
EtherCAT Slave PC LabVIEW is a software add-on for that helps you use a PC with LabVIEW as an EtherCAT slave in a programmable logic controller (PLC)-controlled system. This combination of a PLC and PC with LabVIEW facilitates automated testing technology. To use the PC as a slave, a Beckhoff PCI or PCI Express EtherCAT card is also required. EtherCAT Slave PC LabVIEW provides an API that you can use to create and access data objects in the object dictionary for cyclic and acyclic data exchange. You also can use the add-on to read and write CANopen over Ethernet (CoE) objects, and transfer files using the file access over EtherCAT (FoE) protocol. Additionally, the add-on supports LabVIEW events for processing and changes of CoE object data.
