The IO750 I/O module is an EtherCAT module to connect real-time target machines to external devices.
The IO750 handles the complete data exchange between the connected EtherCAT Master and the real-time application. The data exchange is processed via a dual-port memory. The module acts as one EtherCAT slave exclusively. If you want to simulate multiple EtherCAT slaves, check out our Multi-Node Simulator.
This I/O module is ideal for closed-loop controls and hardware-in-the-loop simulations using MATLAB® and Simulink.The IO750 I/O module is fully compatible with the Simulink Real-Time™ workflow. The extensive Simulink Real-Time driver blockset offers comprehensive functionality and firmware updates are easily available, as the Setup driver block downloads microcontroller firmware each time a target application is initialized.
- 2 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX isolated, auto-crossover function Ethernet channels
- Supports distributed clocks and synchronization of the real-time application
- DMA enables fast data exchange on PCI bus
- Acyclic communication
