Q.series EC compatible with IgH EtherCAT Master

The Q.series EC measurement modules have been proven to be compatible with the IgH EtherCAT Master stack for Linux. The IgH EtherCAT Master is designed as a kernel module for Linux 2.6 / 3.x and complies with IEC 61158-12. The master stack supports -among others- Distributed Clocks, CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE), File Access over EtherCAT (FoE) and Servo Profile over EtherCAT (SoE). The IgH EtherCAT Master is a component of EtherLab®, an open-source toolkit for rapid real-time code generation under Linux for test and automation purposes (www.etherlab.org).

The Q.series EC has been selected by SPHEREA Test & Service (www.spherea.com) as the preferred measurement solution for the development of a rocket engine test bench. The IgH EtherCAT Master enabled SPHEREA to fully integrate the Q.series EC modules into their U-TEST Real-Time System. U-TEST is a simulation and hybrid testing environment for the design, integration and qualification of on-board systems.

On top of all the features and benefits of EtherCAT, the Q.series EC offers SPHEREA a high-performance, test lab worthy measurement solution.
