Narrow bus couplers for compact I/O stations


New Inline bus couplers  

New Inline bus couplers

The modular Inline I/O system product range from Phoenix Contact has now been extended with two new bus couplers: the IL EC BK-PAC bus coupler connects the Inline I/O system to an EtherCAT® controller.

The bus coupler designed as an EtherCAT® slave supports the CoE and FoE mailbox protocols. The entire I/O station is mapped as a modular EtherCAT® device using the Modular Device Profile (MDP) via the bus coupler. A corresponding ESI file is available for integrating the Inline station into the programming system. The IL CO BK-XC-PAC bus coupler for CANopen® is designed as an XC variant and can be used in adverse ambient conditions. For distributed safety solutions, both bus couplers can be combined with safety-related terminal blocks featuring SafetyBridge Technology. Due to the overall width of just 40 mm, compact I/O stations can be easily implemented using this new generation of bus couplers.
