Embedded World Show 2020

Visit us on the Embedded World Show 2020 in Nuremberg Hall 4 / 4-644.  Acontis will showcase these software products:

EC-Simulator - EtherCAT Network and Slave Simulation

  • Virtual Commissioning with a Digital Twin
  • EtherCAT control system release tests
  • Software development and education


acontis HYPERVISOR - Real-time Virtualization Type 1 Hypervisor

  • Enhancement of Type 2 Hypervisor solutions
  • Combines RTOS VM with Kernel-based Virtual Machine
  • Supports Multiple Operating Systems
  • Independent reboot of all guests while others continue operation


TSN Stack for Embedded Systems

  • Support of TSN Standards, e.g. IEEE802.1AS / IEEE1588-2008 (Clock Synchronization) and IEEE802.1 Qbv (Time Scheduled Traffic).
  • High deterministic low-latency real-time Ethernet Drivers for many popular controllers
  • Non real-time TCP/IP traffic with no side effect to real-time traffic
  • Application interface (API) to higher layer protocols (e.g. EtherCAT, OPC UA)


LxWin: Real-time Hypervisor: Windows + Linux

  • Run real-time Linux alongside Windows on a single PC (Type-2 Hypervisor)
  • Visual Studio support for real-time software development
  • Use existing Linux drivers, protocol stacks, libraries and applications
  • Optionally use Intel VT, VT-d Hardware Virtualization
  • We show: EtherCAT Master Stack and TSN running on Linux


Web based EtherCAT Configuration and Diagnosis

  • EC-Engineer Web for Configuration and Diagnosis of EtherCAT networks
  • Can also be used to diagnose Beckhoff TwinCAT controllers
  • Mobile operation using a standard web broser, e.g. on tablets or smart phones
  • No installation required on the controller


We are looking forward to meeting you at our booth (Hall 4/ 4-644)
