EPP2008-0022 | 8-channel digital output 24 V DC, IMAX = 0.5 A (∑ 3 A)

The EPP2008-0022 EtherCAT P Box with digital outputs connects the binary control signals from the controller on to the actuators at the process level. The eight outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A each, although the total current is limited to 3 A. This makes these modules particularly suitable for applications in which not all of the outputs are active at the same time, or in which not all of the actuators draw 0.5 A current.

The signal state is indicated by means of light emitting diodes. The signals are connected via M12 screw type connectors. All outputs are short-circuit-proof and protected against inverse connection.
