EtherCAT P Extension system and junctions EK13xx

EtherCAT P combines communication and power in a single 4-wire standard Ethernet cable. The 24 V DC supply of the EtherCAT P slaves and of the connected sensors and actuators is integrated: Us (system and sensor supply) and Up (peripheral voltage for actuators) are electrically isolated from each other and can each supply a current of up to 3 A to the connected components.

EK1300 | EtherCAT P coupler

The EK1300 EtherCAT P 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.

EK1310 | 1-port EtherCAT P extension with feed-in

The EK1310 EtherCAT P feed-in unit enables conversion from EtherCAT to EtherCAT P or extension of an EtherCAT P network. Terminal points are used to supply the Us (system and sensor supply) and the Up (peripheral voltage for actuators) for the EtherCAT P circuit. 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.

EK1322 | 2-port EtherCAT P junction with feed-in

The 2-port EK1322 EtherCAT P junction enables configuration of EtherCAT P star topologies. The ports can be used to connect individual EtherCAT P devices or whole EtherCAT P strands. The EK1322 can be installed at any point in an EtherCAT strand between the EtherCAT Terminals (ELxxxx). The front terminal points are used for the system and sensor supply Us and the peripheral voltage for actuators Up for the EtherCAT P outputs. In addition to the Run LED and the link and activity status of the respective port, two status LEDs indicate the state of the Us and Up voltages, as well as overload and short-circuit events.
