Beckhoff EP9300-0022 EtherCAT Box
The IP67-protected EP9300-0022 EtherCAT Box from Beckhoff connects Profinet RT networks with EtherCAT I/O modules, enabling local installation in the field. This extends the higher-level network — entirely without the use of a control cabinet — with a subordinate, high-performance and ultra-fast I/O solution. The telegrams are transferred from Profinet RT to EtherCAT and vice versa, so that the EtherCAT Box modules can be integrated seamlessly. The shock- and vibration-resistant sealed EP9300 EtherCAT Box is connected to Profinet via a d-coded M12 socket.
The three EtherCAT Box series — EP, EQ and ER — provide a range of IP67 I/Os which can be installed directly in the field. The range includes standard digital I/Os and modules with special integrated functions, such as stepper motor modules or modules for more complex measuring tasks.
The EtherCAT Box I/Os are available with different housing types to meet the requirements of a wide range of industrial applications. The EP series with plastic housing is suitable for moist, dirty or dusty conditions in general machine construction, in assembly applications or in semiconductor and logistics environments, for example. The EQ module series, with its stainless steel housing and IP69K protection, is designed for applications in the food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The modules from the ER series have a particularly robust, fully sealed die-cast zinc housing, making them suitable for harsh industrial and process environments, such as pressing systems and metal foundries, or automotive environments and robotics applications where weld spatter resistance is a key requirement.
