The 750-354 EtherCAT Fieldbus Coupler connects EtherCAT to the modular WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM.
The fieldbus coupler automatically configures, creating a local process image which may include analog, digital or specialty modules. Analog and specialty module data is sent via words and/or bytes; digital data is sent bit by bit.
The “upper” EtherCAT interface connects the coupler to the network. The “lower” RJ-45 socket connects additional EtherCAT devices to the same line.
EtherCAT® (Ethernet Control Automation Technology) is a real-time ETHERNET solution designed for industrial automation applications and characterized by high performance, flexible topology and simple configuration. With EtherCAT®, the costly ETHERNET star topology can be replaced with a simple line or tree structure.
