EoE Overview

EoE = Ethernet over EtherCAT

This allows communication between Workbench (installed on the EtherCAT master PC) and the AKD using Telnet communication over the EtherCAT network.  It allows connecting to the drive with Workbench without needing a separate PC or Ethernet port.

Types of Connections

EoE connection:

  • EtherCAT Master PC with Workbench installed ---> Telnet over EtherCAT ---> AKD X5 EtherCAT Port

Separate Workbench and EtherCAT connections:
