EL6731 | PROFIBUS master/slave terminal

The PROFIBUS master terminal EL6731 supports the PROFIBUS protocol with all its features. Within an EtherCAT Terminal network, it enables the integration of any PROFIBUS devices. Thanks to the PROFIBUS chip developed in-house, the terminal is equipped with the latest version of the PROFIBUS technology – including high-precision isochronous mode for axis control and expanded diagnostic options. These masters are the only ones that support different poll rates for the slaves. Features:

Like the FC3101 PROFIBUS PCI card, the EL6731 can be used for connection to PROFIBUS networks. The terminal, however, enables a more space-saving implementation since no PCI slots are required in the Industrial PC.
