EtherCAT P: One Cable Automation for the field level
EtherCAT P combines communication and power supply on a standard 4-wire Ethernet cable. System and sensor supply “Us“ and peripheral voltage “Up“ for actuators are galvanically isolated and directly injected into the wires of a 100 Mbit line, resulting in a highly cost-efficient and compact connection. Using a matching combination of connectors and cables, a complete machine unit can be supplied with only one line. All advantages of EtherCAT, such as free choice of topology, high speed, optimised bandwidth utilisation and telegram processing on the fly are equally available with EtherCAT P.
