Duration of Project: 200-500 people hours to work on requirements, develop code, test
Requirements: a developed system should be flexible and maintainable. Programmer should reside in USA.
Goal: To program microcontrollers to establish a robust monitoring of the EtherCat communication bus during environmental stress testing. Do not need to design a hardware.
This tool will be needed to interface with existing automation software and will eventually deploy to the factory for continual use.
Familiarity with the EtherCat protocol a must.
Experience with similar project with programming controllers for factory automation/assembly lines a must.
Programming Language: or C/C++, or Linux controller or PLC - your choice
