ER7342-0002 | 2-channel DC motor output stage 50 V DC, 3.5 A

The ER7342 EtherCAT 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 Box has two channels that indicate their signal state via light emitting diodes. The LEDs enable quick local diagnosis.

The EtherCAT Box modules with zinc die-cast housing are ready for use in harsh industrial and process environments. With the fully sealed design and metal surfaces the ER series is ideal for applications requiring enhanced load capacity and protection against weld spatter, for example.
