EP2918-0032 | 8-channel digital output, TwinSAFE Logic, 24 V DC

The EP2918-0032 TwinSAFE EtherCAT Box provides fail-safe digital outputs in an IP 67-protected module (eight outputs for 24 V DC actuators with up to 2 A). For signal connection, M12 screw type connectors are used. Moreover, the EP2918-0032 integrates a programmable TwinSAFE Logic enabling the implementation of safety applications directly in the EtherCAT Box. In combination with other safe components a complete safety application can be realized directly within the IP 67 environment.
