Ensure rapid and reliable commissioning: With EtherCAT diagnostics in TwinCAT

Possibilities for EtherCAT diagnostics in TwinCAT

The diagnostic functions integrated into TwinCAT’s EtherCAT master facilitate rapid and targeted commissioning for even extensive topologies. Graphical user interfaces and comprehensive overview tables enable faulty installations to be rapidly identified. Many of the functions can also be directly accessed via the task or the PLC.

In this 30-minute webinar, Dr. Josef Papenfort, TwinCAT Product Manager, and Martin Podrouschek, Product Manager Fieldbus Systems, introduce the possibilities and advantages of EtherCAT diagnostics in TwinCAT. The webinar is intended for technically oriented users who already have some experience of using TwinCAT automation software.
