EsmaCAT Server S

The EsmaCAT Server S is a powerful EtherCAT master hardware measuring 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and yet capable of running all the computing needs of most robotic applications. It comes with a pre-loaded real-time Linux (based on Ubuntu 16.04), along with the complete suite of the EsmaCAT Server software (EtherCAT Master). Ther Server S has all of the necessary hardware to be used as a desktop PC during the development stage (including Wi-Fi, HDMI, VGA, and 6 USB ports), but is also optimized for mounting within the final robot itself with its low power consumption, fan-less design, aluminum construction, and SSD. This 2-in-1 capability drastically improves the smoothness of transition between development, testing, & debugging, and final deployment. With the EsmaCAT Server software (EtherCAT master) loaded as a C++ API, the Server S also offers you the flexibility of easily running other custom robot algorithms on it without the need for an additional pieces of computing hardware. 

With EsmaCAT Server S, you can read/write EtherCAT packets of various EtherCAT slaves such as:
