EtherCAT Arduino Shield by Esmacat Arduino and Mbed Library
This demo showcases a larger application of our EtherCAT Arduino Shield by Esmacat (EASE). This demo uses 5 different MCU boards (two Arduino Unos, two STM Nucleo boards, and one Arduino Uno clone) to showcase EASE's compatibility as well as expandability.
The light sensor shield signals the LED strip, MP3 player module, motor shield, and LCD shield to change according to the ambient light. Each module is connected to an EASE board and one of the MCU boards mentioned above.
EASE is perfect for users who want to learn more about EtherCAT as an educational tool, users who want to expand their projects using multiple Arduino boards, Arduino-like boards, and Arduino shields, and users who want a simple versatile EtherCAT slave to interface with their existing EtherCAT based projects!
