openCONFIGURATOR is an open-source configuration framework for easy setup, configuration and maintenance of any POWERLINK (http://www.ethernet-powerlink.org/) network. It ideally complements openPOWERLINK, the open source POWERLINK protocol stack for master and slave.
The project consists of a core library implementing the configuration algorithms and an eclipse plugin base user interface (https://www.eclipse.org).
