Support of ServoDrive over EtherCAT

EtherCat Master now with SoE profiles

The Kithara EtherCAT Master now supports the SoE profile according to IEC 61800-7-204 (ServoDrive over EtherCAT). This way, it is possible to use servo inverters with this protocol as part of the EtherCat topology. This has been successfully tested on inverters by Bosch-Rexroth.

In order to gain SoE support, the EtherCAT Master (e. g. Kithara RealTime EtherCAT) requires an extension for SoE.
