IO750: EtherCAT Slave I/O Module

Configurable EtherCAT Slave I/O module with one port and Simulink driver blocks

Connect your target machine with other nodes using EtherCAT. The IO750 I/O module handles the complete data exchange between the connected EtherCAT Master and the real-time application. The data exchange is processed via 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.


  • Fully compatible with Simulink Real-Time™ workflow
  • Extensive Simulink Real-Time driver blockset offers comprehensive functionality
  • Supports distributed clocks and synchronization of the real-time application
  • DMA allows fast data exchange on PCI bus
  • Easy firmware updates: the Setup driver block downloads protocol firmware each time a target application is initialized.

For EtherCAT Master support see the following:
