Redundant EtherCAT Bus Systems
IOLITE data acquisition system is equipped with two fully independent EtherCAT bus systems that work in parallel.
The Primary EtherCAT Bus
The primary bus is used for perfectly timed and synchronized data acquisition via DewesoftX data acquisition software. It connects via EtherCAT RJ45 cable to any PC running DewesoftX DAQ software and is able to stream any number of input and output channels at high-speed to the PC's hard drive.
The Secondary EtherCAT Bus
The secondary IOLITE EtherCAT bus can be used in two ways:
Low latency front-end interface for any 3rd party EtherCAT compatible real-time controllers.
Additional bus for redundant 3rd party data acquisition system in critical DAQ applications.
