With the EK1000, Beckhoff expands the EtherCAT I/O system with a new Bus Coupler. The device enables the communication of EtherCAT segments with remote EtherCAT controllers via heterogeneous Ethernet networks. Through support of TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking) functions, the coupler enables delays caused by switches in Ethernet networks to be minimised and the wide range of EtherCAT I/O Terminals and other EtherCAT devices to be used in TSN network environments.
