Product description

The EtherCAT Workbench is a comprehensive EtherCAT
configuration and diagnostic tool to create network
configuration files, initialize and monitor an EtherCAT network.
The application supports an offline as well as an online mode.
Key features:

- Built-in EtherCAT master to support an online topology scan as
well as initialization and monitoring of an EtherCAT network.
- Export of configuration files compliant to the EtherCAT Network
Information (ENI) format which are accepted by EtherCAT
masters of different vendors.
- Configuration based on a user extendable repository of standard
EtherCAT Slave Information (ESI) files which are supplied by the
device vendor. Configuration of devices without ESI files possible
using the online information stored in the devices ESI EEPROM.

Network configuration:

- Offline configuration using intuitive drag'n'drop interface.
- Online configuration based on network topology scan.
- Instantly usable configuration which covers all EtherCAT
configuration aspects (SM / FMMU / DC setup, PDO mapping,
etc.) without detailed knowledge about the EtherCAT technology.
- Enhanced editor to create/read/write/modify ESI EEPROM data.

Network diagnostic:

- Free run mode initializing and monitoring the EtherCAT network
controlling the EtherCAT state machine of individual slaves.
- Sophisticated graphical network topology viewer.
- Online read and write access to EtherCAT slave device register,
memory and object dictionary using dialogs with advanced filter
- Read/write access to process data with charting support.
- Access to statistical Ethernet and EtherCAT data.
-Logging capability for EtherCAT slave CoE emergency messages,
EtherCAT master and Workbench events.
