EtherCAT is an industrial network standard that belongs to the Industrial Ethernet family and the technologies used for real-time distributed control. EtherCAT was developed by the German company Beckhoff. The goal of the protocol was to use Ethernet technology to automate applications that require frequent time updates (also called cycle times) with low jitter (for synchronization) and low hardware costs. EtherCAT datagrams are passed inside a standard Ethernet frame. EtherCAT is the fastest industrial Ethernet solution providing high performance, flexibility and cost-effectiveness.
