EP9224-0037 | 4-channel power distribution box ENP to EtherCAT P

The EP9224-0037 enables power distribution from a B17-ENP input to four EtherCAT P ports with B17-ENP forwarding. In each EtherCAT P junction, the current consumption for the control voltage US and the peripheral voltage UP is monitored, limited and if necessary switched off.

The input voltage and current values of all outputs can be evaluated via the process data. A 5-pin B17-ENP connector is used for communication with the box and for power supply of power to and with up to 14 A (per US/UP). Several modules can be configured in a cascade arrangement through power forwarding. In case of a short circuit on one of the four outputs or eight voltages (4 x US/4 x UP), this voltage is switched off. The supply for the other junctions remains active. The switch-off or voltage regulation is carried out in such a way that the input voltage does not drop below a critical value. A continuous log of the relevant data can be retrieved in the event of an error. During start-up consumers with large capacities can be added without problem.

The diagnostic messages of the individual channels can be read by the master via the EtherCAT interface. Independent switching of individual consumer branches is also possible via the EtherCAT master.
