Example: Digital Input/Output on QEC with EtherCAT Library

[QEC Tutorial]

This example shows how to operate the QEC-M (EtherCAT Master), QEC-RXXDF0 (EtherCAT Digital Input Slave module) and QEC-RXXD0F (EtherCAT Digital Output Slave module) through the EtherCAT Library of the 86Duino IDE to perform basic applications and to see the actual Physical status: The connected external LEDs are controlled via the EtherCAT Digital Output Slave Module and their status is received via the EtherCAT Digital Input Slave Module.



  • QEC-M-01
  • QEC-R11DF0: EtherCAT 16 Channel Digital Input Slave Module
  • QEC-R11D0F: EtherCAT 16 Channel Digital Output Slave Module
  • Others:
    • LAN Cable
    • 24V 2A Power Source

If this is your first time running the 86Duino IDE, we recommend that you read Set up the QEC-M-043T for 86Duino before proceeding with this example.
