Decentralised drives integrate into EtherCAT networks

19 May 2014

SEW-EURODRIVE is equipping its decentralised drive technology with a new EtherCAT communication module to enable its MOVIMOT decentralised drive system to be fully integrated into an EtherCAT network.

Just two DIP switches are needed for startup and communication with the EtherCAT master takes place via four compact process data sets which can be implemented quickly in the master.

The EtherCAT communication module is compatible with all existing SEW field distributors, so can easily replace existing communication modules. This compatibility makes the module a key element for optimising existing machines and systems.
