EL5042 EtherCAT Terminal, 2-ch. BiSS C interface

EL5042 EtherCAT Terminal enables exact and fast positioning applications with BiSS C encoders and ensures high synchronicity to other processes by EtherCAT’s Distributed Clocks.

The 2-channel BiSS-C interface for direct connection of BiSS-C encoders is suitable for exact and fast positioning applications – with distributed clocks ensuring high synchronicity with other processes. Via unidirectional BiSS-C communication, the EL5042 sends as a master the clock signal for position detection to the BiSS-C slave (encoder), which returns the position data with up to 64-bit resolution. The EL5042 can be optimally adapted to different encoder types by selecting appropriate operation modes, transmission frequencies and frame widths.
