Up to 20 inputs

you shoudt go with a MESA
eighter stepper 7i96 or 7i76e up to 5axis
on servos woudt be a 7i80
or better a 7i92m and 7i77 encoders can be at 7i83

i got a cheep 6axis at 7i92 and 2 china parports
but that does not match yours
so 7i76e woudt be best

I thought ethercat was a standard and there was a compliance hurdle for manufacturers. Check the Beckoff web site.

There is a thread here about ethercat. forum.linuxcnc.org/24-hal-components/223...t-hal-driver?start=0
Maybe ask there. Some of the work done by Grotius with ethercat is very cool. There was a very recent post of how to install it.

Despite my admiration for Mesa, in some markets, the customer is expecting to see ethercat hardware.

But yes, the Mesa 7i76e has 32 inputs and 16 outputs... if step and direction is your thing.
