EPP2316-0008 | 8 x digital input + 8 x digital output 24 V DC, Imax = 0.5 A

The EPP2316 EtherCAT P Box combines eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs in one device. A filter constant of 10 µs is available for the inputs. The outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A, are short-circuit proof and protected against inverse polarity. Signal state and status are indicated by means of light emitting diodes. The signals are connected via a 25-pin D-sub socket.
