         * What is EtherCAT?
         EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based, next-generation, ultra-high-speed motion network that enables high-speed, highly accurate communication between
         devices that control the operations of machine controls and is widely used around the world to meet the increasing need for high-speed, high-precision
         control. EtherCAT is being promoted by the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) headquartered in Germany and is gaining worldwide usage in the United
         States, Japan, China, and Korea. Omron is collaborating with ETG and ETG Japan to promote the adoption of EtherCAT.
