April 12, 2018 - KINGSTAR announced the latest version of the KINGSTAR Machine Automation Platform is now available. Version 3.4 adds a variety of functionality, like IO-Link master device support, as well as support for additional hardware and expanded documentation. KINGSTAR products are designed for industrial machines requiring motion control and positioning systems.
Using the EtherCAT standard; the power of Industrial PCs; and the Windows operating system, enhanced by IntervalZero′s RTX64 hard real-time software that transforms Windows into a real-time operating system (RTOS), users can create software-only, PC-based machine controllers.
There are two product lines: KINGSTAR Soft Motion and KINGSTAR EtherCAT. KINGSTAR Soft Motion is a complete software solution that creates PC-based machine controllers. KINGSTAR EtherCAT provides support for CANopen over EtherCAT and configuration of EtherCAT networks.
