The housing and all screw connections are made entirely of stainless steel. The screws are fitted flush without grime-collecting contours. The distributed I/O boxes are mounted to the machine or equipment by means of mounting brackets, avoiding unwanted cavities and joints in which dirt can settle. In addition, a wide range of digital and analog units in this series covers numerous I/O signal requirements. Through the integrated EtherCAT interface, the modules can be connected directly to an EtherCAT network without an additional coupler box. Each box is a totally self-contained EtherCAT device and an EtherCAT slave, which can be connected directly to any other EtherCAT device via a standard Ethernet cable with 100Base-TX.
