EtherCAT: Essential for Industrial Automation Solutions
The six videos on this page demonstrate how the RTOS Platform with EtherCAT is a complete real-time Industrial Automation solution.
The RTOS Platform does this by harnessing the power and value of Windows, x86 multiprocessors, RTX hard-real-time software, and real-time Ethernet.
The six technical and instructional videos detail how the RTOS Platform with EtherCAT reduces the need for real-time hardware such as digital signal processors (DSPs). They also look at how the platform lowers costs, improves performance, and streamlines development for Industrial Automation systems.
Last year IntervalZero announced a partnership with acontis technologies GMBH. Today IntervalZero includes the acontis EtherCAT master in a product offering for RTX 2012, the latest 32-bit version of our hard real-time software.
IntervalZero is a member of the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG).
Our RTX hard real-time software transforms Microsoft Windows into real-time operating system and delivers real-time symmetric multiprocessing on x86 multicore processors. EtherCAT enables high speed communications and Safety Inspection Level (SIL) 3 certification.
The RTOS Platform allows developers to utilize Microsoft’s Visual Studio single integrated development environment to maximize productivity.
