EK9500 | EtherNet/IP Bus Coupler

EtherNet/IPThe EK9500 Bus Coupler connects EtherNet/IP networks to the EtherCAT Terminals (ELxxxx) as well as EtherCAT Box modules (EPxxxx) and converts the telegrams from EtherNet/IP to the E-bus signal representation. One station consists of an EK9500 and any number of EtherCAT Terminals. The coupler is connected to EtherNet/IP via RJ45. In EtherCAT, the EtherNet/IP coupler has at its disposal a lower-level, powerful and ultra-fast I/O system with a large selection of terminals. The coupler supports the EtherNet/IP profile and fits seamlessly into EtherNet/IP networks.
