[etherlab-dev] EtherCAT bridge

We have a scenario where we have two master nodes (one Windows based BH Twincat and one Linux based Etherlab Ethercat master) with each their set of input/outputs. Now we would like to use a bridge (BH EL6692) to connect the two system so that one system could send information to the other.

Has anyone successfully used a bridge (like EL6692) to turn one master into a client for the other network?

If so, how should it be connected (both the components and the cables)?

And last but not least, are there any configuration specific things that one needs to remember?

If somebody has done this including the Etherlab Ethercat master code, we would really like to know.

Hope that somebody out there has gotten this to work or knows of a different way to accomplish the same thing.

Best regards / Med venlig hilsen
