EpoCAT FR1000 is a control board for axes in frequency/burst.

The board is compatible with EtherCAT protocol. With a maximum output frequency up to 1MHz, it is ideal for applications with step motors, and applications with burst piloted brushless motors. The board manages up to 5 axes in frequency, 4 inputs, 2 outputs, 1 DAC of 12 bit and 2 ADC of 12 bit. The board is supplied with all connectors and can be installed on DIN guide. Since it is a compatible slave EtherCAT board, it is possible to use it with any EtherCAT Master like AxesBrain, LinuxCNC, CODESYS or other.
