Narrow couplers for compact I/O stations

By Chemical Engineering |

The modular Inline I/O system product range has now been extended with two new bus couplers: the IL EC BK-PAC bus coupler connects the Inline I/O system to an EtherCAT controller (photo). The bus coupler, which is designed as an EtherCAT slave, supports the CoE and FSoE mailbox protocols. The entire I/O station is mapped as a modular EtherCAT device using the Modular Device Profile (MDP) via the bus coupler. A corresponding ESI file is available for integrating the Inline station into the programming system. The IL CO BK-XC-PAC bus coupler for CANopen is designed for use in adverse ambient conditions. For distributed safety solutions, both bus couplers can be combined with safety-related terminal blocks featuring SafetyBridge Technology. — Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co. KG, Blomberg, Germany
