Description

A motion control software for EtherCAT hardware using the open source EtherCAT master (www.etherlab.org) has been developed. The motion control software functionalities includes motor record functionalities: positioning, jogging, homing and soft/hard limits. Other functionalities supported by the motion control software are axis synchronization, a scripting language for custom synchronization of different axis, virtual axes, and interlocking. An EPICS model 3 driver is used to interface the motor record, and more development is ahead.
