With the increasing presence of EtherCAT in the motion control industry, choosing between EtherCAT and Ethernet is becoming an increasingly important question. This presentation will cover the technical differences between both methods and provide advice on how to choose between them based on application requirements. Strengths and weakness of both Ethernet and EtherCAT will be discussed including development time, ease of use, cost, and complexity.

Additionally, Galil’s DMC-500x0 EtherCAT Master and DMC-40x0 Ethernet controller will be reviewed with regards to the capabilities and advantages they can offer. This presentation is geared towards system developers looking to understand the differences, costs, and capabilities of both Ethernet and EtherCAT.
