No external synchronization is necessary in order to synchronize the EtherCAT masters or EtherCAT segments with one another. This function is particularly interesting for XTS systems that require synchronously running EtherCAT masters. The FC1028 EtherCAT card can additionally be used to realize an EtherCAT redundancy.
