Automatic configuration of EtherCAT IO devices
- Any application involving EtherCAT IO
Elmo’s G-MAS multi-axis controller supports a growing number of 3rd party IO devices.
The Elmo Application Studio (EAS) automatically detects EtherCat compliant devices added to the network. Once detected, they are configured and displayed in the EtherCat network tree. The user can choose the default process data configuration or can change configuration parameters according to device and network specifications.
Upon automatic configuration, an EtherCAT device can be used instantly and is included in the network diagnostic tool statistics. Device process data is updated and transferred cyclically through the network as part of normal G-MAS EtherCat activities.
