Esmacat Miniature EtherCAT Base Module
Customized Esmacat devices to fit your exact needs
Esmacat is a powerful and flexible ecosystem, not merely a set of limited and rigid slaves! This allows us to easily develop custom EtherCAT slave solutions to meet your exact needs in terms of actuators, sensors and control algorithms. As robotics engineers, we understand the issues and complexity that arise when developing robots. Our expertise in robotics includes, but is not limited to, both high-level and low-level hardware and software.
One example of customization merged the functionality of our Motor Driver 250 and 16CH Loadcell interface into a single board to enable compact control of a force sensing actuator module.
Other requests have included:
Duplication of functions
The incorporation of specific connectors and pinouts
Firmware additions to interfaces with specific sensor protocols
The addition of customer requested hardware directly onto an Esmacat slave
Integrating our miniature Esmacat EtherCAT base module with existing technologies giving them simple EtherCAT slave capabilities
