EK1300 | EtherCAT P coupler

The EK1300 coupler integrates EtherCAT Terminals (ELxxxx) in the EtherCAT P network. The upper EtherCAT P interface is used to connect the coupler to the network, the lower EtherCAT-P-coded M8 socket is used for optional continuation of the EtherCAT P topology. Since EtherCAT P integrates the power supply and the communication on a single line, an additional power supply for the coupler via the terminal points is no longer required. Depending on the application, the system and sensor supply US or the peripheral voltage for actuators UP can be bridged to the power contacts. In addition to the Run LED and the link and activity status, status LEDs indicate the state of the US and UP voltages, as well as overload and short-circuit events.
