EP2338-x00x | 8-channel digital input or output 24 V DC, freely configurable

The EP2338 EtherCAT Box has eight freely configurable digital inputs or outputs in one device. Various filter constants are available for the inputs. The outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A, are short-circuit-proof and protected against inverse polarity. The state of each signal is indicated by means of light emitting diodes. The signals are connected optionally via screw type M8 connectors (EP2338-0001) or connector M12 screw type (EP2338-0002). The sensors are powered by the load voltage UP.
