The EK1101-0080 EtherCAT Coupler is the link between the EtherCAT protocol at fieldbus level and the EtherCAT Terminals. The coupler converts the passing telegrams from Ethernet 100BASE-TX to E-bus signal representation. A station consists of a coupler and any number of EtherCAT Terminals that are automatically detected and individually displayed in the process image.

 

Special features:

  • Connection technology: 2 x RJ45 socket
  • Connection lengths: up to 100 m
  • Fast Hot Connect technology for changing topologies
  • Number of EtherCAT Terminals in the overall system: up to 65,535

 

The EK1101-0080 supports Fast Hot Connect technology. This facilitates significantly faster connection of the EtherCAT components in applications with changing topologies. Compared to Hot Connect, which is an EtherCAT feature and enables direct coupling and uncoupling of components during system operation, Fast Hot Connect offers even faster data transfer and allows even faster tool changes.

The EK1101-0080 has two Fast Hot Connect ports in the form of RJ45 sockets and three hexadecimal ID switches. The Fast Hot Connect ports are specially marked, since they may only be combined with each other. The EK1122-0080 EtherCAT junction with Fast Hot Connect can be used to configure a star topology.

The system and field supply, each 24 V DC, is provided directly at the coupler. The attached EtherCAT Terminals are supplied with the current required for communication from the supplied system voltage. The coupler can supply a maximum of 5 V and 2 A. If higher current is required, power feed terminals such as the EL9410 have to be integrated. The field supply is forwarded to the individual I/O components via the power contacts with up to 10 A.
