EL2088 | 8-channel digital output terminal 24 V DC, negative switching

The EL2088 digital output terminal connects the binary control signals from the automation unit on to the actuators at the process level with electrical isolation. The EtherCAT Terminal has eight 0 V (ground) switching outputs and generates load currents with outputs that are resistant to overload and short-circuit. It contains eight channels that indicate their signal state by means of light emitting diodes.
