We present the strategy and plans for control system hardware at ESS. The ESS is following a hardware selection that consists of three levels of performance: MTCA.4 for the high performance systems, EtherCAT for fast distributed I/O and PLCs for industrial I/O and high reliability requirements. We present the status and progress in each of these platforms and the features of our standard solutions.
