EtherCAT Digital Control Bus
Over the years there has been a need for an open low-cost digital control bus for automation and motion control. Some were available but had proprietary technology. With the introduction of EtherCAT it has become the accepted open standard for Ethernet-based control buses.
PLC Programming Standards in Motion Control
There is a natural tendency for industries to push toward a standard be it hardware or software, and programming motion controls is no exception. Dedicated motion controls have been around for over three decades and in the early years, nearly all had their own unique programming language.
