Mecano CNC: How a Software-Based Approach Enables High-Quality CNC Machines at Competitive Prices
Competition is fierce in Latin America. CNC machine shops are so price-sensitive that they often must forgo performance and quality for lower-cost machines. To combat this challenge, Mecano needed to distinguish their CNC machines by adding quantifiable performance and quality without commensurately increasing price.
- “Plug-and-play” capabilities for minimal configuration.
- A controller interface that runs on Windows.
- A real-time operating system (RTOS) that’s market tested.
- An RTOS without restrictions on 3rd party applications run on the PC.

In this white paper, “5 Real-Time, Ethernet-Based Fieldbuses Compared,” we examine five different protocols that claim to offer the best price/performance open standard for real-time Ethernet fieldbuses. Topics covered include:
5 standards compared: Ethernet/IP, Ethernet Powerlink, EtherCAT, PROFINET IRT, & SERCOS III
Evaluation of standards bodies, philosophies, and architectural underpinnings, response time, jitter, data rate, and more
Fieldbus scorecard: which standard wins in price/performance and market acceptance?
Understand your options when it comes to real-time, Ethernet-based fieldbuses. Read the white paper to see how the top five standards stack up.
