EL6692 | EtherCAT bridge terminal

The EtherCAT bridge terminal EL6692 enables real-time data exchange between EtherCAT strands with different masters. It also enables synchronisation of the distributed clocks of the individual strands. The power supply on the primary side (E-bus) comes from the E-bus, on the secondary side (RJ45) via an external connection. If several EL6692 are used, data traffic to the terminals on the other side can continue in the event of a power supply failure on one side. The bridge terminal can also be used for integrating a subordinate PC system as an EtherCAT slave.
