Ethercat Master on Raspberry Pi

Thu Dec 26, 2013 10:51 am

an easy way to use the Raspberry Pi as Ethercat Master is to use CODESYS

see here:

or this

How is that possible?

Steps to use it (you Need CODESYS for it):
1. Register here and download CODESYS V3.5SP4
-> install it
then download the Raspberry Pi Image here:

http://store.codesys.com/accessories/co ... ry-pi.html

boot the pi with that, now yoou could scan the raspberry Pi

Very good for training and education purpose... beside ethercat
ModbusTCP / Master & Slave
Ethernet / IP Scanner
Using PIFace
Using PICam (Trigger Images by plc...)
Webvisu which is executable on Android's and IPhone/Ipad
is possible...

If anyone need a debian package for installing the plc on his existing Image you need to ask [email protected] for
codesyscontrol_V3.5.4.0.deb ...
