Beckhoff Automation’s EK1132 Power over EtherCAT junction terminal easily provides power to EtherCAT® sensors over a standard Cat 5 cable.
FILED IN:  Controls  > Strategy
Ultra high speed EtherCAT sensors that deliver low microsecond (µs) level communication can now be installed in high performance industrial applications. Based on the IEEE standard 802.3af, the EK1132 requires only a standard EtherCAT/Ethernet cable for the fieldbus signal and the power supply. The EK1132 EtherCAT junction is particularly suitable for sensors such as shaft encoders or length measuring devices that can now be connected via a single cable for reduced wiring efforts.
