QEC (Quick to EtherCAT) is an Arduino-based EtherCAT System solution, through the Vortex86EX2 processor developed by DMP Electronics, meets the requirements of hardware and software Real-time. Become an EtherCAT device whose hardware and software are user-friendly and satisfy all users who expect to use EtherCAT in the market.


The list below gives a short summary of the master features:

  • Designed as a real-time Arduino Integrated development environment
  • Distributed Clocks support
    • Configuration of the slave’s DC parameters through the application interface.
    • Synchronization (offset and drift compensation) of the distributed slave clocks to the reference clock.
    • Optional synchronization of the reference clock to the master clock or the other way round.
  • CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE)
    • SDO upload, download and information service.
    • Slave configuration via SDOs.
    • SDO access from userspace and from the application.
  • File Access over EtherCAT (FoE)
    • Loading and storing files via the command-line tool.
    • Updating a slave’s firmware can be done easily.
  • Configuring EtherCAT cable redundancy
    • Two independent Ethernet interfaces can be used for EtherCAT cable redundancy.
    • Cable redundancy offers resilience for the cabling.
    • Interruptions of the EtherCAT communication due to broken wires or unplugged LAN cables are avoided.
  • 86Duino IDE (Arduino based)
    • Simple-to-use API of Arduino with many examples
    • ArduBlock (Scratch tool)
    • HMI Editor (HMI design tool)
    • 86EVA (EtherCAT-based Virtual Arduino)
