    EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool Version 2.3 released

    Conformance to the protocol standard is the basis for the problem-free interaction of devices from different manufacturers in the same network, also called in short interoperability. And both are thus very important for the success of a communication technology. Therefore, the EtherCAT Technology Group attaches great importance to the conformance of EtherCAT devices: All ETG member companies commit themselves to test their devices with the EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool (CTT) before market release.
