EL1808 | HD EtherCAT Terminal, 8-channel digital input 24 V DC, 2-wire connection

The EL1808 digital input terminal acquires the binary control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the higher-level automation device. The EtherCAT Terminal contains eight channels, consisting of a signal input and 24 V DC. The signal states are displayed by LEDs. The power contacts are looped through.

For the EL1808 EtherCAT Terminal, the reference ground for all inputs is the 0 V power contact. The wires can be connected without tools in the case of solid wires using a direct plug-in technique.

The HD EtherCAT Terminals (High Density) with increased packing density feature 16 connection points in the housing of a 12 mm terminal block.
