EK9700 | SERCOS III Bus Coupler

SERCOSThe EK9700 Bus Coupler connects SERCOS III networks to the EtherCAT Terminals (ELxxxx) as well as the EtherCAT Box modules (EPxxxx) and converts the telegrams from SERCOS III to the E-bus signal representation. One station consists of an EK9700 and any number of EtherCAT Terminals. The coupler is connected to the network via RJ45. In EtherCAT, the SERCOS III coupler has at its disposal a lower-level, powerful and ultra-fast I/O system with a large selection of terminals. The coupler supports the SERCOS III profile and fits seamlessly into SERCOS III networks.
