Use Speedgoat real-time solutions to implement EtherCAT protocol connectivity with MATLAB & Simulink. Using the Simulink Real-Time workflow and Speedgoat hardware, you can use a wide range of industrial protocols like Ethernet for Control Automation Technlogy (EtherCAT) with your real-time application. Speedgoat products provide seamless integration of EtherCAT master and EtherCAT slave communications with the MathWorks product family (e.g. MATLAB, Simulink, Simulink Test and Simulink Real-Time).
The ideal solution to interface Simulink with motor servo drives, power controllers, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and many other industrial equipment using EtherCAT protocol communications.
Support for EtherCAT Master is provided as standard with real-time target machines. In addition, Speedgoat provides versatile support for EtherCAT Master and EtherCAT Slave with a range of dedicated I/O modules (see selection guide below). All solutions come with Simulink driver blocks. For further information see Support for Ethernet-based Protocols.
