Hi TRYPSIN,

 

Those look like modes specific to the YASKAWA device and not EtherCAT in general. I would recommend contacting the company that created the manual you saw them in (probably YASKAWA).

I asked somebody familiar with servo motors, these modes are not YASKAWA specific, just general mode definition according to CiA protocol

So they're not commands specific to EtherCAT or YASKAWA.

But possibly specific to CAN in Automation.

CiA would be a completely different (on all 7 levels) OSI stack as compared to EtherCAT, e.g. different cabling.
