EtherCAT® / Ethernet Selector for two Masters or Networks
Designed to Build Redundant EtherCAT Master Systems
One EtherCAT-G network connected to the primary or the secondary EtherCAT Master by a simple control signal
Ideal to build up a redundancy at the EtherCAT Master side as extension to EtherCAT Technology Group Standard (ETG)
Compatible for Ethernet Based Systems
Flexible application range to switch one network between two Masters / PCs for all Ethernet based systems or field bus standards up to 1000BASE-T
Optical Isolated Switching Signal
The switching signal is optically isolated
Characteristic according to DIN EN 61131-2, Type 3
DIN-EN carrier rail mounting
Ethernet physics according to IEEE 802.3
The ECX-ETH-Selector is equipped with a LAN selector. Controlled by a simple switching input signal, the ECX-ETH-Selector can connect for example an EtherCAT-G network to one of two different EtherCAT Masters. The control signal is optically isolated.
The ECX-ETH-Selector is designed for DIN-EN carrier rail mounting.
The module provides service-friendly ‘wiring’ of the supply voltage. The power supply can be applied via the In-Rail-bus connector (TBUS-connector) integrated in the mounting rail or separately via the clamp-connection.
