Many blue chip customers world-wide use our products.

Products and services

The EC-Master Stack is designed and optimized to run on different embedded (real time) operating systems. The reliable and robust implementation is used by many companies worldwide like KUKA Roboter Control, Lenze, VIPA…

Using the LxWin Hypervisor it is possible to run Windows and an extremely fast, real-time Linux in parallel. Plenty of Linux drivers, e.g. for fieldbus controllers or GigE camera systems, communication stacks (EtherCAT, Profinet, OPC, OPC UA, TSN, ...) or complex software solutions like CNC controller or software PLCs can be used without any change under LxWin.

The acontis TSN stack provides a conveniently usable API in terms of which respective protocols (OPC UA, Profinet, EtherCAT, …) may be transmitted via a TSN network. Furthermore, the stack includes a special RTOS specific network driver in order to use the same Ethernet interface for regular TCP/IP traffic, this is done in a way not to disturb parallel transmission of real-time protocols to be carried over TSN.

TSN Software Stack

If real-time capable devices have to be connected to a TSN network, the whole real-time path starting in the application running on the device’s real-time operating system (RTOS), down through the TSN stack, the Ethernet device driver to the Ethernet hardware has to be entirely deterministic – both for sending as well as for receiving data.
