Controller software

E2M uses a single turn-key software and hardware controller solution for all motion and control loading systems. The servo drives and peripheral hardware are interfaced with the real time controller using the industry standard EtherCAT real time network technology. The digital information on this network is fully integrated into the controller code resulting in excellent diagnostics capabilities. E2M uses real time Linux as the default real time operating system. This means easy accessibility of the data files via the network and Windows based remote diagnostics and support. At the same time hard real time performance is maintained. Alternatively, a Linux based solution can be supplied.
