EPP7342-0002 | 2-channel DC motor output stage 50 V DC, 3.5 A

The EPP7342 EtherCAT P Box enables direct operation of two DC motors. The speed or position is specified by the automation device via a 16-bit value. By connection of an incremental encoder (24 V DC, single-ended), a simple servo axis can be realised. The output stage is protected against overload and short-circuit. The EtherCAT P Box has two channels that indicate their signal state via light emitting diodes. The LEDs enable quick local diagnosis.
