EL2596 | EtherCAT Terminal, 1-channel LED output, 24 V DC, 3 A


The EL2596 LED strobe control terminal contains a flexible power supply unit that supplies the LED with the required current and voltage. Applications from continuous light to short light pulses in the kHz range are thus possible. Each individual flash can be triggered in a controlled manner by the control system via the distributed clocks/timestamp function. The EL2596 has a trigger output for triggering cameras and high-quality, fast current and voltage control, so that line scan cameras, for example, also benefit from constant illumination. Extensive real-time diagnostics, e.g. for input current/voltage and output current/voltage allow detailed monitoring of the LED light intensity. Thus, overdrive applications with short high-current pulses through the LED are possible. If a specifiable load corridor is exited, e.g., due to load errors, the EL2596 switches off to protect the LED (resettable).

Power supplies
