EPP2817-0008 | 24-channel digital output 24 V DC, Imax = 0.5 A

The EPP2817-0008 EtherCAT P Box with digital outputs connects the binary control signals from the controller on to the actuators at the process level. The 24 outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A each. All outputs are short-circuit proof, protected against inverse connection and can be diagnosed. An output short-circuit is recognised and passed on to the controller.

The signal connection is realised by a 25-pin D-sub socket. Undervoltage detection (supply voltage < 18 V DC) is integrated and is signalled to the controller.
