The new standard extends EtherCAT technology to 1 and 10 Gb/s

Industry 4.0

This example network architecture incorporates standard EtherCAT, EtherCATG and EtherCAT G10 for faster communication and greater data throughput.

The technical Committee of the EtherCAT Technology Group has adopted EtherCAT G, initially introduced by Beckhoff Automation, as an addition to the EtherCAT standard. Dr Guido Beckmann, Chairman of the ETG Technical Committee, stated: “With EtherCAT G, particularly data-hungry applications, such as machine visions and high-end measurement technology, can now also be integrated. This extends the range of applications for EtherCAT technology and makes it even more viable for the future.”

Complementarity and integrability

The EtherCAT G will now extend the EtherCAT technology from its standard 100/Mb/s to 1 and 10 Gb/s but all the existing 100 Mb/s EtherCAT technology can be seamlessly integrated into any EtherCAT G system. Amongst the benefits of this extension, EtherCAT G is particularly suitable for applications where large amounts of data are processed and transported per device.
