The new BK9105 Bus Coupler from Beckhoff Automation makes the comprehensive Beckhoff Bus Terminal I/O system of more than 200 different signal types fully available to Ethernet/IP users.
ODVA-certified coupler follows the producer and consumer model for I/O data. Unit is equipped with 12 different LEDs that offer diagnostic information without requiring additional tools. Coupler acts as an Ethernet/IP slave and uses standard RJ45 connectors and auto-negotiates either a 10-Mbit/s or 100-Mbit/s Ethernet connection. Priced from $318, unit also features an integrated dual port Ethernet switch that allows flexible topology configurations.
