EPP9001-0060 | EtherCAT P/EtherCAT connector with power transmission

The EPP9001-0060 EtherCAT P Box converts the incoming EtherCAT P signal (red M8 socket, EtherCAT-P-coded) into an EtherCAT signal (green M8 socket). In addition, the voltage output from the US and UP voltages can be found on the EtherCAT P Box (black M8 socket). The EPP9001-0060 is an active EtherCAT device, i.e. it appears in the EtherCAT process image of the EtherCAT master, e.g. TwinCAT.

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