EtherCAT Protocol: Based on Industrial Ethernet Fieldbus communciation

EtherCAT Principle

    CiA402 control mode

  • Profile sition Mode (PP): Set position, speed, accelenrtion and deceleration parameters, and execute relative or absolute position commands from the internal buffer of the drive.
  • Profile Velocity Mode (PV): Set speed, acceleretlon and deceleration parameters, and execute the speed command by the internal buffer of the drive on commands from the internal buffer of the drive.
  • Cyclic Synchronous Position Mode (CSP) The main controller generates a position trajectory and sends the target position (0X607A) to the drive in each PDO update cycle.
  • Homing Mode (HM) Support No.17-30, No.35 homing modeThe ralevant parameters need to be set according to the format

    PDO and SDO parameters

  • Process Data Object (PDO): Process data object Used to transmit real-time data Configure the relevant parameters of the driver as PDO parameters, and realize real-time reading and writing of status and commands between the master station and the slave station in each synchronization cycle For example, parameter such as target position in CSP mode
  • Service Date Object (SDO): Service Deta Objects Used to configure static parameters, Configure the driver parameters that do not need to be changed in real time as SDO parameters, and set the relevant parameters of the slave driver on tha master station. For example, working current and other parameters.
