Data Throughput of AB7699 EtherCAT slave to Ethernet I/P scanner


#1

Hello, I have an application that would receive 120 bytes of data from an EtherCAT master and then pass it on to an Ethernet I/P slave. The AB7699 appears to be the solution, but this data would be updated by the EtherCAT master at a rate of 100 hz. Would the AB7699 keep up with this rate?

thank you
Dave

Hello Dave,

The Gateway has an I/O data transfer with average throughput between networks of 10 - 15 ms or assuming I converted this correctly would be 100 to 60 Hz which is right on the edge of what you are looking to transfer.
