EtherCAT junction for PoE sensors


The EK1132 EtherCAT junction is based on IEEE standard 802.3af and supports Power over EtherCAT. A standard EtherCAT/Ethernet cable is used for the fieldbus signal and the power supply. The EK1132 EtherCAT junction is particularly suitable for sensors such as shaft encoders or length measuring devices that can now be connected via a single cable. The sensor supply voltage of 48 V is generated in the junction from the 24 V voltage used as the industry standard.
