EPP2334-0061 | 4-channel digital input or output, 24 V DC, M8, Imax = 0.5 A

The EPP2334-0061 EtherCAT P Box has four digital channels, each of which can optionally be operated as an input or as an output. A configuration for using a channel as input or output is not necessary; the input circuit is internally connected to the output driver, so that a set output is displayed automatically in the input process image.

The outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A, are short-circuit proof and protected against inverse polarity. The filter constant of the inputs is 10 µs.

The state of each signal is indicated by means of light emitting diodes. The signals are connected via M8 connectors.

The EtherCAT P Box modules are characterised by their small and space-saving form factor.
