The control software includes its own real-time operating system, runs on one of the multi-core PC processors, and provides high-speed host to controller communication over shared RAM and virtual TCP/IP. Uses one of the standard Ethernet ports of the PC as the EtherCAT master communication channel. Available in 2 versions: the SPiiPlusSC-HP for complex and performance-demanding applications with up to 64 axes; and the SPiiPlusSC-LT, an economical version that addresses the needs of 1-8 axes cost sensitive applications.
