Bridge Terminal Enhances Synchronization

The EL6692 bridge terminal allows data to be exchanged between individual EtherCat systems or the distributed clocks of different systems without synchronization, directly in the I/O system.

In addition to “normal” data exchange, the bridge permits distributed clock synchronization (exact calibration of distributed clocks) between several masters, in exact drive synchronization required in spatially distributed machines. The terminal can help integrate subordinate PCs, for example DIN rail mounted CX Embedded PCs. The terminal system permits communication to 1,000 distributed I/O in 30 microseconds (µs), almost unlimited network size and optimum vertical integration using industrial Ethernet and Internet technologies. Terminals are available for all common digital and analog signal types encountered in the world of automation.
