The ECX-Master-Selector is equipped with a LAN selector switch. Controlled by a simple switching input signal, the ECX-Master-Selector can connect an EtherCAT network to one of two different EtherCAT masters with cable redundancy. The control signal is optically isolated.
The ECX-Master-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.
