EtherCAT Partners

The IntervalZero RTOS Platform with EtherCAT harnesses the power and value of the Windows operating system; x64 x86 multicore multiprocessing; symmetric multiprocessing-enabled RTX64/RTX hard-real-time software, and real-time Ethernet capabilities to provide a complete real-time solution for Industrial Automation.

IntervalZero partners with four of the world’s leading EtherCAT Master providers – KINGSTAR, acontis, esd, and Koenig, all of which support the latest release of RTX64.

 KINGSTAR_150x31 KINGSTAR is the most open Machine Automation platform for IoT. It is an all-software solution for integrating industrial motion control, machine vision and programmable logic controllers (PLC) onto a single PC. Built on the EtherCAT standard and supported by a real-time 64-bit Windows operating-system (RTX64), KINGSTAR empowers engineers to design, develop and deploy machine automation as stand-alone controllers or multiple controllers as a machine automation system. The EtherCAT component is the only open Plug-and-Play solution that can auto-detect and auto-configure hundreds of drives and IOs from a large multiple vendors. This saves enormous time in getting to market and provides a breakthrough in flexibility as changing drives only requires a system reboot rather than a brand new development effort. Visit
Acontis technologies is a leading provider of both EtherCAT technology and Windows real-time software,  and it provides and EtherCAT master for IntervalZero RTX. Its ECWin real-time platform is a product bundle that provides a powerful real-time EtherCAT programming environment.Visit
ESD is an experienced system integrator that delivers products, turn-key solutions and services to the industrial automation, process control, automotive, medical, aerospace and test & measurement industries. The company provides IntervalZero RTX drivers for their CAN fieldbus cards with additional support for higher layer protocols (CANopen, J1939, …) as well as an implementation of the Real-Time Industrial Ethernet protocol EtherCAT.
