Ethernet or EtherCAT for Motion Control Webinar: Choosing the Right Network for Your Applications

JANUARY 26, 2016  |  11:00 AM ET

With the increasing presence of EtherCAT in the motion control industry, choosing between EtherCAT and Ethernet is becoming an increasingly important question. This presentation will cover the technical differences between both methods and provide advice on how to choose between them based on application requirements.  Strengths and weakness of both Ethernet and EtherCAT will be discussed including development time, ease of use, cost, and complexity.

Additionally, Galil’s DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Master and DMC-40×0 Ethernet controller will be reviewed with regards to the capabilities and advantages they can offer.  This presentation is geared towards system developers looking to understand the differences, costs, and capabilities of both Ethernet and EtherCAT.

Motion Control for Newbies

Motion Control For Newbies
Check out the latest publication from the maxon academy, Motion Control for Newbies, a practical introduction to motion control.  132 pages.

The basic approach of this textbook, like many, is a practical and experimental one; however, it is reversed from most.  Instead of first explaining the theory of motion control and then applying it to specific examples, here we will start with hands-on experimenting on a real maxon EPOS2 P positioning control system by means of the EPOS Studio software and explain all the relevant motion control principles/features as they appear on the journey.  Therefore, the text contains mainly the exercises and practical work to do.  Background information can be found in the colored boxes.

This is primarily a textbook about motion control and not about programming a PLC. Therefore, the programming part should be considered as an introduction on how to program the motion control aspects.  It is not a full PLC programming course.

Motion control is mechatronics.  It is the combination of mechanics and electronics, of actuators (motors) and sensors all controlled by software.  In this textbook, we identify and define the role, behavior and mutual interaction of the different elements of a motion control system.  However, we need to know the basic internal construction and working principles of the elements only to a limited extent, but rather look at them as a black box.  Given a certain input, what comes out of the box?  How is this output generated and which parameter can be used to influence the output?  For instance, we will not explain how feed forward control must be implemented, but we will explain the basic idea of it and how the parameters will look during axis tuning… click on the link below to download the complete textbook.

Recorded Webinar: The Evolution of Ethernet in Motion and I/O Control

YouTube Video  57 minutes

In case you missed the May 13th Galil Motion Control Webinar -The Evolution of Ethernet in Motion and I/O Control, a recorded version can be viewed at the following link-

This webinar focuses on the evolution of Ethernet-based motion control and why Ethernet is the protocol of choice for industrial and automation applications.  The webinar discusses the differences of Ethernet in a distributed vs centralized architecture as well as the trade off in performance.  Topics include deterministic and non-deterministic Ethernet communication protocols and what applications they are best suited for.
