Deterministic Machine Control

DDI’s SuperIOr EtherCAT control delivers on today’s demanding machine design requirements. Outputs are fully synchronized in real-time within and across every module. Jitter between I/O points is < 1 μs.

Modern Machine Design Requirements

  • Full EtherCAT compliance

  • Low EtherCAT latency

  • Fast I/Os sampling

  • Highest I/O precision

  • Deterministic – low jitter

  • Active “hot-idle” for SW tool upgrade

DDI SuperIOR EtherCAT Delivers

  • Validated: DC clock and FOE

  • < 1ms master peripheral response

  • DI/DO at 8 KHz, AI/AO at 8 KHz

  • 16 Bit AIs and AOs (+/- 2 mV)

  • I/Os synchronized < 1 μs jitter

  • Support “hot-idle” program on CM
