D 244 030 00 | EtherCAT Coupler with integrated digital inputs/outputs

The EtherCAT Couplers from the EK18xx series combine the functionalities of the EK1100 EtherCAT Coupler with standard digital I/Os in one housing. This results in a compact design that is especially suitable for applications with a low number of I/Os. Like the EK1100, the EK18xx coupler can be extended by all EL/ES terminals. The digital I/Os are implemented with a 1-wire technique. The wiring can be implemented without tools using a direct plug-in technique with solid wire conductors or ferrules.

The D 244 030 00 has eight digital inputs and four digital outputs.
