Interfacing With an Existing EtherCAT Robotic System

by Esmacat

Hello everyone,

For this update, we would like to show off an example in which EASE is used with a complex, EtherCAT-based robotic system called Harmony SHR. Hopefully this will demonstrate how quick and easy it is to add EASE to any EtherCAT project (or even to incorporate EtherCAT into a project that’s not yet using it!)

Please let us know if you have any questions about EASE or Esmacat. We are always happy to help!

Product Choices


EASE Board

One Arduino shield, in Uno form factor, with EtherCAT capabilities for use when connecting multiple Arduino boards


PoE Injector & Esmacat Master Transmission hub

A 24 VDC PoE Injector to power all EtherCAT slaves and to transmit data from the Esmacat Master. A single PoE Injector is necessary for most EASE configurations.


Harmonic Bionics, Inc.

The mission of Harmonic Bionics is to innovate the rehabilitation process with robotic technology. The company was founded in 2016 as a spin-off of ReNeu Robotics Lab at the University of Texas at Austin. We are actively developing a robotic platform for introduction into the clinical market, and we aim to revolutionize the fields of therapy for stroke and spinal cord injury. Our exoskeletons are already being tested in pilot clinical trials and are well known in the rehabilitation robotics research community.
