EL9181 | Potential distribution terminal, 8 x 2 potentials

The potential distribution terminal EL9181 provides 16 terminal points for potential distribution and enables the voltage to be picked up without further terminal blocks or wiring. The power contacts are fed through to the next terminal without connecting to the terminal points.

The HD EtherCAT Terminals (High Density) with increased packing density feature 16 connection points in the housing of a 12 mm EtherCAT Terminal. The conductors can be connected without tools in the case of solid wires using a direct plug-in technique.
