S3EC: Sercos/Ethercat-Bridge links Sercos and Ethercat networks NEU
The S3EC device connects Sercos and Ethercat networks.
It acts on both busses as IO device. The S3EC transmits bi-directional both real-time and asynchronous data (SVC and CoE/VoE). The width of the real-time data can be set via a configuration switch in the area from 32 to 2048 bytes.
In addition it is equipped with a further Ethernet port to communicate with devices connected to the real time busses using standard protocols like TCP/IP. The IEEE 1588 master also available on this port can be used for clock synchronization.
