EKM1101

The EKM1101 EtherCAT Coupler connects the ELMxxxx EtherCAT measurement modules with EtherCAT. Such a station consists of an EKM1101 coupler, any number of EtherCAT Terminals and a bus end cap or an EtherCAT extension such as EK1110 or EK1122. The coupler converts the passing telegrams from Ethernet 100BASE-TX to E-bus signal representation.

EL1202

The EL1202 digital input terminal acquires the binary 24 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the higher-level automation unit. The EtherCAT Terminal contains two channels whose signal state is indicated by LEDs.

EL1252

The EL1252 digital input terminal acquires the fast binary 24 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. The EtherCAT Terminal contains two channels whose signal state is indicated by LEDs. The signals are furnished with a time stamp that identifies the time of the last edge change with a resolution of 1 ns. With this XFC technology, signal characteristics can be traced exactly in time and correlated with the distributed clocks system-wide. With this technology, machine-wide parallel hardware wiring of digital inputs or encoder signals for synchronization purposes is often no longer required. In conjunction with the EL2252 EtherCAT Terminal (digital output terminal with time stamp), the EL1252 enables responses with equidistant time intervals, largely independent of the bus cycle time.

EL1252-0050

The EL1252-0050 digital input terminal acquires the fast binary 5 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. The EtherCAT Terminal has two channels that indicate their signal state via light emitting diodes. The signals are furnished with a time stamp that identifies the time of the last edge change with a resolution of 1 ns. With this XFC technology, signal characteristics can be traced exactly in time and correlated with the distributed clocks system-wide. With this technology, machine-wide parallel hardware wiring of digital inputs or encoder signals for synchronization purposes is often no longer required. The switching thresholds of the input circuit are based on the CMOS level: Signal voltage "0" < 0.8 V, signal voltage "1" > 2.4 V. The 5 V supply voltage can be generated by the EL9505 power supply terminal and fed into the power contacts.

EL1254

The EL1254 digital input terminal acquires the fast binary 24 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller.

EL1258

The EL1258 digital input terminal acquires the fast binary 24 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. Each EtherCAT Terminal has eight channels that indicate their signal state via light emitting diodes. In comparison with the EL1252, the EL1258 offers not only a higher channel density, but also a higher performance thanks to the XFC multi-timestamp function. Whereas the EL1252 can accept one edge change with time stamp per bus cycle, the EL1258 offers the possibility to register up to 32 events with time stamps. The reduced timestamp width of 32 bits, which is equivalent to a resolution of 4.29 seconds, does not represent a functional limitation for most applications. The EL1258 is synchronized with other EtherCAT devices through the distributed clocks system, so that events in the whole system can be measured with a uniform timebase.

EL1259

The 16-channel EL1259 digital EtherCAT Terminal combines the functions of the EL1258 – eight multi-timestamp inputs – with those of the EL2258 – eight multi-timestamp outputs. The high channel density in conjunction with time stamping of the signals enables fast, efficient processes through optimized sensor and actuator control. The EL1259 is also synchronized with other devices through the distributed clocks system, so that events in the whole system can be measured with a uniform timebase. The combination of DC-switched inputs and outputs within one terminal can be used for local switching tasks.

EL1262

The EL1262 digital input terminal acquires the fast binary 24 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. The EtherCAT Terminal has two channels that indicate their signal state via light emitting diodes. The signals are sampled with a configurable, integer multiple (oversampling factor: n) of the bus cycle time (n microcycles per bus cycle). For each microcycle, the EtherCAT Terminal generates a process data block that is transferred collectively during the next bus cycle. The timebase of the terminal can be synchronized precisely with other EtherCAT devices via distributed clocks. This XFC procedure enables the temporal resolution of the digital input signals to be increased to n times the bus cycle time.

The switching thresholds of the input circuit are based on the CMOS level: Signal voltage "0" < 0.8 V, signal voltage "1" > 2.4 V. The 5 V supply voltage can be generated by the EL9505 power supply terminal and fed into the power contacts.

EL1502

The EL1502 EtherCAT Terminal is an up/down counter and transmits the counter value in an electrically isolated form to the higher-level automation device. When used as a single-channel up/down counter (32-bit), the pulse is set via the clock input; the counting direction is specified via the U/D input. Furthermore, the input can also be used as a gate input for triggering the counter. In 2-counter mode, two separate counters are available (Clock and Clock1 inputs), which can be parameterized as up or down counters. The signal state of the inputs and outputs is indicated by light emitting diodes. Both outputs are switched according to the counter state, so that they can be used as fast control signals for field devices. The EL1502 device supports the distributed clocks function. This means the counter can be read at constant intervals (DC accuracy << 1 µs).

EL2202

The EL2202/EL2202-0100 digital output terminal connects the binary control signals from the automation device on to the actuators at the process level with electrical isolation. This terminal benefits from very small output delay and is therefore suitable for signals requiring particularly fast output. The EtherCAT Terminal has a push-pull output that can be actively switched to 24 V, 0 V or high-impedance. The EL2202-0100 contains two channels. LEDs indicate the signal state of each channel.

EL2212

The EL2212 digital output terminal connects the binary control signals from the automation device on to the actuators at the process level with electrical isolation. The multi-timestamp features allow each EtherCAT cycle to capture as many events per channel as were preloaded in the internal buffer.

EL2252

The EL2252 digital output terminal connects the binary control output signals at the process level with electrical isolation. The outputs of the EtherCAT Terminal are switched with high precision to match the transferred timestamp, which has a resolution of 10 ns. This technology enables output switching times to be specified precisely across the system. The distributed clocks are used for reference. In conjunction with the EL1252 (digital input terminal with time stamp), the EL2252 enables responses with equidistant time intervals, largely independent of the bus cycle time. Each output can be switched to high resistance individually.

EL2258

The 8-channel digital output terminal EL2258 connects the binary output signals of the controller at the process level with electrical isolation. As in the EL2252, the outputs of the EL2258 are switched with high precision relative to the transferred time stamp, although there are certain differences in the details: Eight instead of two channels, lower timestamp resolution and auto-activation, which enables consecutive switching tasks in each cycle. The multi-timestamping feature allows each EtherCAT cycle to capture or output as many events per channel as were preloaded in the internal buffer.

EL2262

The EL2262 digital output terminal connects the binary control output signals at the process level with electrical isolation. The outputs are controlled with an adjustable integral multiple (oversampling factor: n) of the bus cycle time (n microcycles per bus cycle). For each micro-cycle, the EtherCAT Terminal receives a process data block that is output consecutively. The timebase of the terminal can be synchronized precisely with other EtherCAT devices via distributed clocks. An output pattern with a significantly higher pulse sequence than the bus cycle time is thus output precisely with the system-wide timebase. This procedure enables the temporal resolution of the digital output signals to be increased to n times the bus cycle time. The maximum output rate is 1 Msamples/s.

EL2502-0010

The EL2502-0010 output terminal modulates the pulse width of a binary signal, and outputs it electrically isolated from the E-bus. The mark/space ratio is preset by a 16-bit value from the automation device. The output stage is protected against overload and short-circuit. The EtherCAT Terminal contains two channels whose signal state is indicated by LEDs. The LEDs are driven in time with the outputs, and show the duty factor by their brightness. The EL2502-0010 supports EtherCAT distributed clock timestamps in order to influence switching on, off and over of a PWM signal with microsecond precision.

EL2521

The EL2521-xxxx output terminals change the frequency of a binary signal and output it (electrically isolated from the K-bus). The frequency is preset by a 16 bit value from the automation device. The signal state of the EtherCAT Terminal is indicated by light emitting diodes. The LEDs are clocked with the outputs and each displays an active output.

EL2522

The EL2522 incremental encoder simulation terminal (pulse train) outputs a frequency-modulable signal on two channels with four outputs. The signal can be used to control motor drivers or other signal receivers, which are controlled by single cycles. The pulse sequence and pulse number can be specified directly via the process data in the frequency. Alternatively, the integrated path control can be used. For each channel the operating mode (frequency modulation, pulse/direction specification and incremental encoder simulation) can be selected. In addition, the EtherCAT Terminal can control three output channels in the ABC encoder simulation.

EL2596

The EL2596 LED strobe control terminal contains a flexible power supply unit that supplies the LED with the required current and voltage. Applications from continuous light to short light pulses in the kHz range are thus possible. Each individual flash can be triggered in a controlled manner by the control system via the distributed clocks/timestamp function. The EL2596 has a trigger output for triggering cameras and high-quality, fast current and voltage control, so that line scan cameras, for example, also benefit from constant illumination. Extensive real-time diagnostics, e.g. for input current/voltage and output current/voltage allow detailed monitoring of the LED light intensity. Thus, overdrive applications with short high-current pulses through the LED are possible. If a specifiable load corridor is exited, e.g., due to load errors, the EL2596 switches off to protect the LED (resettable).

EL1258-0010

The 8-channel digital input terminal EL1258-0010 acquires fast binary control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. The EL1258-0010 is the ground switching version of the EL1258 and offers not only a higher channel density compared to the EL1252, but also higher performance due to the multi-timestamp function. Whereas the EL1252 can accept one edge change with timestamp per bus cycle, the EL1258-0010 offers the possibility to register up to 32 events with timestamps. The reduced timestamp width of 32 bits, which is equivalent to a resolution of 4.29 seconds, does not represent a functional limitation for most applications. The EL1258-0010 is synchronized with other EtherCAT devices through the distributed clocks system, so that events in the whole system can be measured with a uniform timebase.
