The combination of a PLC and PC with LabVIEW software is a common setup for automated testing technology. PCs with industrial image processing or advanced measurement hardware and complex evaluation are integrated as modules into PLC control systems.

With the solution EtherCAT Slave PC LabVIEW, you can use a PC with LabVIEW as an EtherCAT slave in a PLC-controlled system. The PC uses a PCI EtherCAT slave card from Beckhoff to fulfill the requirements of the EtherCAT bus. On the LabVIEW side, an API is provided to generate data objects for cyclic and acyclic data exchange and to access these. With File over EtherCAT, you can easily transfer files like measurement data, images, and reports.
