DIAdem EtherCAT Driver

a-solution's DIAdem EtherCAT driver adds various EtherCAT slaves and especially the National Instruments EtherCAT slave chassis NI 9144 and the following C-series modules to the hardware available in DIAdem DAC (as of 15.04.2014):

  • NI 9203: 8 Channel Current input module
  • NI 9205: 32 Channel Voltage input module
  • NI 9213: 16 Channel Thermo couple input module
  • NI 9215: 4 Channel Voltage input module
  • NI 9219: 4 Channel Universal input module
  • NI 9221: 8 Channel Voltage input module
  • NI 9227: 4 Channel Current input module
  • NI 9234: 4 Channel Voltage input module, IEPE signal conditioning
  • NI 9235: 8 Channel Strain gauge input module
  • NI 9236: 8 Channel Strain gauge input module
  • NI 9263: 4 Channel Voltage output module
  • NI 9265: 4 Channel Current output module
  • NI 9269: 4 Channel Voltage output module
  • NI 9422: 8 Channel Sinking digital input module
  • NI 9425: 32 Channel Sinking digital input module
  • NI 9475: 8 Channel Sourcing digital output module
  • NI 9476: 32 Channel Sourcing digital output module
  • NI 9477: 32 Channel Sinking digital output module
  • NI 9481: 4 Channel Relay output module.
More hardware upon request.

The driver provides a real-time connection between DIAdem and the chassis via the fast industrial Ethernet Standard EtherCAT and based on the EtherCAT Master by Kithara. Bus scan function detects EtherCAT topology automatically and makes it available within the DIAdem DAC scheme file.

Technical Details:

  • Bus scan function based on EtherCAT XML device description files
  • Integration of supported C-Series modules and individual FPGA code
  • Data acquisition with channel sampling rates of up to 10 kHz (without oversampling)
  • Signal output in Interrupt at up to 1 kHz per channel
  • compatible with DIAdem from version 2012
  • Windows 7 support
