TSN with EtherCAT
ETG supplements EtherCAT Standard with TSN for use in heterogeneous networks
Dear customers and partners,
we are please to announce, that all of the latest ADL CPU-Boards are TSN-Ready:
The EtherCAT Group (ETG) have supplemented EtherCAT with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) technologies, expanding the field of possible EtherCAT applications to include heterogeneous network environments. With the help of TSN, industrial controls can contact a number of different EtherCAT segments in real-time through Ethernet networks. In doing so, no changes to the EtherCAT slave devices are required: the EtherCAT Device Protocol, including all high performance characteristics, is fully preserved. Also expanded by TSN is the EtherCAT Automation Protocol (EAP) for communication between controls, which will result in even more deterministic performance on this level.
