Ethernet POWERLINK is a deterministic real-time protocol for standard Ethernet. It extends Ethernet with mechanisms to transfer data with predictable timing and precise synchronisation, meeting the typical timing demands for high-performance automation and real-time control applications. It is an open protocol managed by the Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group (EPSG).
Speedgoat provides versatile support for Ethernet POWERLINK Controlled Node (slave) with the IO758 Ethernet adapter I/O module. It comes with Simulink driver blocks.
