Conec presents its sensor actor line product range M8x1 – EtherCAT P.
Superfast EtherCAT communication with a 24V power supply that enables a compact and costeffective device interface with variable installation and connection options!
Real-time Ethernet is necessary for many applications. EtherCAT communication is characterised by its fast transmission speed. To achieve real time synchronization The wiring technology is implemented with a 4-pole shielded M8x1 connector and a standard Ethernet cable, the power supply by a separate cable.
EtherCAT-P, revolutionize EtherCAT by implementing a special feature – the combination of superfast EtherCAT communication with a 24V power supply. The combination of 24V and 3A Data and power is provided on a two-wire data pair. This direct coupling of the supply voltage to the 100 MBit line for EtherCAT-P enables a compact and costeffective device interface.
In order to make it impossible to connect with other standardized M8x1 connector systems, a new coding has been developed for this application. Special features of this coding are the red colouring of the contact carriers and the leading T-contour on the front face of the coupling contact carrier.
The new product range is in use in various fields such as drive technology, industrial interfaces, housing and device construction, mechanical engineering, control and automation technology, communications and more.
