Decentralised, end-to-end system synchronisation: With Distributed Clocks and EtherCAT.


EtherCAT | Distributed Clocks: Functional principle, application and diagnostics

Distributed Clocks are an essential element of EtherCAT communication enabling decentralised, end-to-end system synchronisation including CPU, I/O and drive technology components. In this 30-minute webinar, Martin Podrouschek and Fabian Assion, both Product Management I/O, will explain the functional principle of EtherCAT Distributed Clocks and the application with Beckhoff EtherCAT products. Moreover, the possibilities for parameter setting and diagnostics of Distributed Clocks in TwinCAT are outlined.
