EtherCAT Master controllers EMP-9000 and EMP-2848M series

ICP DAS plans to launch production of EtherCAT Master controllers of the EMP-9000 and EMP-2848M series by the end of the year, as well as modules for them. The controllers are based on modern Intel and ARM processors, operate under Windows 10 IoT or Linux, and also support the creation of programs in IEC 61131-3 languages: IL, LD, FBD, ST, SFC using the Win-GRAF environment.

EtherCAT is a high-performance Ethernet-based industrial communication protocol supporting various network topologies.

EMP-9000 series controllers

The EMP-9000 PLC series is built with an Intel Atom E3950 or Intel Core i5-8365UE CPU and runs Windows 10 IoT. The EMP-9000 controllers allow you to control up to 32/16 axes and up to 512 slave units. The PLCs have built-in 8 DIs and 8 DOs, and the EMP-9251 model additionally has 2 slots for installing I/O expansion modules e9K, I-9K, I-97K.

EMP-9000 controllers are available in two versions:

  • EMP-9xx1: without additional Software and support for .Net Compact Framework, Dll for VC and Visual Studio.Net
  • EMP-9xx8: with Win-GRAF and IEC 61131-3 language support: IL, LD, FBD, ST, SFC.

In addition, EMP-9xx8 PLCs support PLCopen function blocks for axis control, comply with the CiA402 EtherCAT slave driver standard, and work with protocols: EtherCAT, Modbus TCP/RTU and OPC UA server.

Key features of EMP-9000 controllers:

EMP-2848M controller

EtherCAT Master controller EMP-2848M is based on a Cortex-A53 CPU, running Real-Time Linux (RT-Preempt) and with a compact footprint, it is ideal for a small motion control solution where cost and space are critical.

The EMP-2848M controller allows you to work with 128 EtherCAT slave nodes and control up to 16 axes with a cycle time of 500 microseconds. The PLC comes with the Win-GRAF environment, which allows you to create algorithms in IEC 61131-3 languages. There is also protocol support: EtherCAT, Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU.
