EP2817-0008 | 24-channel digital output 24 V DC, Imax = 0.5 A (∑ 4 A)

The EP2817-0008 EtherCAT Box with digital outputs connects the binary control signals from the controller on to the actuators at the process level. The 24 outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A each. All outputs are short-circuit proof, protected against inverse connection and can be diagnosed. An output short circuit is recognised and passed on to the controller.

The signal connection is realised by a 25-pin D-sub socket. Undervoltage detection (supply voltage <18 V DC) is integrated and is signalled to the controller.
