Need help connecting the multi axis controller to CompactLogix L16ER. The multi Axis controller is EtherCat and Allen Bradley says they dont support that technology. Any adapters out there that anybody has had success with? Any insight would be very helpful. Thanks

Hi TFLAHERTY,

Unfortunately we don't have any adapters that we can recommend for Allen Bradley to Ethercat communication. If your controller has RS485 communication then you can connect directly to our flex drivers that can communicate with RS485. But if your controller has Ethernet IP communication you would need a converter to convert it to RS485 since our driver can't communicate to EIP directly.
