Space-saving HD bus terminals
Beckhoff’s ultra-compact HD Bus Terminals feature 16 digital I/O channels in the housing of a 12 mm electronic terminal block.
Using Beckhoff bus couplers or DIN rail-mounted controllers, the HD terminals are compatible with almost every major fieldbus. HD terminals are available in both Beckhoff bus terminal and EtherCAT terminal versions. The flexible HD bus terminals are available in different versions, e.g. as 16-channel terminals for digital inputs or outputs, as 8-channel terminals for digital inputs or outputs with 2-wire connection or as combination terminals with 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. Despite higher channel density, wiring efforts are simplified because of tool-less assembly.
