Ethernet switch with IOLITEd

Hello,


I'm working with the IOLITEd single channel module that uses a RJ45 cable and a minicomputer with only one ethernet port. I would like to know if there is a way to use the available port to have internet connection and receive data from IOLITEd at the same time.


Best regards,


Davide

Dear Davide,


This is not possible since Ethernet and EtherCAT protocols comprise completely different communication. Ethernet works on the principle of recevie/transmit the packets whilst EtherCAT works on the principle of a free stream of packets over the chain. 


We would suggest extending the PC with a USB to Ethernet adapter whether you have a free USB port. Be careful to use the native Ethernet port for EtherCAT communication and adapter for the internet. 


Best regards

I completely agree that This is not possible since Ethernet and EtherCAT protocols comprise completely different communication. I think you should try 国内VPN to resolve the issue.
