Between the 14th and 15th of October 2014 the European EtherCat Plug Fest will take place. The Festo AG & Co.KG invites developers of the EtherCat-systems and tools to Esslingen to perform interoperability tests and to swap experiences around the topic EtherCat. Experts of the EtherCat Technology Group (ETG) will be available with their know-how for technical discussions.

In the context of this event the ETG member Robot Makers GmbH will present EtherCat slave components developed in-house for the first time. In particular, a 4-channel-amplifier for synchronous control of hydraulic systems will be presented. The EtherCat-enabled variant of the Generic Control Box and the subsequent software-tool of this will be also shown on the Plug Fest. The Generic Control Box is a PC-based versatile control system, which is suitable for the integration of complex systems – especially in mobile applications or industry 4.0 scenarios. In this context, a new configuration surface for mobile devices will be presented.
