One fieldbus network for complete machine control 


EtherCATWhat is EtherCAT?

  • EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology)
  • Open Ethernet-based fieldbus standard utilizing IEEE 802.3 Ethernet components
  • Utilizes off-the-shelf wiring: RJ45 connectors, CAT5 cables
  • Real-time optimum Industrial Ethernet Protocol for controlling Servo, AC Drives and I/O.

Why EtherCAT?


EtherCAT is the fastest fieldbus network on the market that enables high performance architecture solutions. Its use of open standards and freedom of topology make it easy to implement, easy to use, and easy to maintain.


Who Supports EtherCAT?


The EtherCat Technology group is the world's largest Industrial Ethernet organization with EtherCAT members1785 member companies, including:

Cognex In-Sight Explorer 4.6


In-SightŪ Explorer 4.6 TestRun is a New Automatic Test, Optimization and Verification System for In-Sight Vision Applications. TestRun gives users increased confidence in the validity of their vision inspection results.


Now, users can ensure that program changes don't break other parameters by quickly checking against the "baseline" configuration. It also minimizes bad results by easily checking that the vision hardware is performing properly.

  • Allows machine operators to easily and automatically test the vision system and verify that it is functioning correctly.
  • Helps application designers demonstrate that the vision system meets the application criteria.
  • Assist quality managers to identify "borderline" inspections and to refine pass/fail criteria.
