Esmacat 16CH Analog Input

Simple EtherCAT-Based Analog Voltage Input Interface

The Esmacat 16CH Analog Input is the easiest, precise integrated EtherCAT solution to read analog signals from sensors. Its various programmable input range and error minimization technology, such as the successive approximation register (SAR) ADC mechanism, ensure the precision of measurement allowing 16 bit effective resolution. Its Power-over-EtherCAT (POE) technology allows high speed communication and flexible connectivity by supporting daisy-chain wiring.  The 16CH Analog Input is a part of the Esmacat suite and is the ideal analog signal interface for both novice and expert robotics engineers due to its compact size, easy programmable master software, and hardware setup.

Incorporating the Esmacat 16CH Analog Input Into Your Project

We have plenty of supporting material on our tutorials page, including this YouTube video and many more, on how to get started with the 16 CH Analog Input Interface. All our material uses the Esmacat Master software for simple setup but the 16 CH Analog Input interface is compatible with all EtherCAT masters via a few extra steps. 

Software

Master Software

Esmacat provides EtherCAT master software to control the motor driver (position control and velocity control included) through a daisy-chain topology filled with Ethernet cables from an EtherCAT master. Our free open-source master software compatible on both Windows and Linux can be found on our Software page. We also have small, compact, high-performance computers (Esmacat Master S and C) for sale already preset with our Master software and zero setup time! Our motor driver is also compatible with other EtherCAT masters not in the Esmacat product line.
