[etherlab-users] Sync Signals

We are to figure out how to synchronize the system clock on top
of ethercat. meaning, I want to use an ethercat packet as the clock.
In the documentation section 3.5 you say:

"Each slave with DC support provides two “sync signals”, that can be
programmed to create events, that will **for example** cause the slave
application to latch its inputs on a certain time." 

Can I cause the reference slave to generate some sort of a sync
packet so that the master synchronizes on it ?

thank you
