The Compact series bus couplers from Beckhoff have been supplemented with the new BK9055 couplers for EtherNet/IP.
The BK9055 couples EtherNet/IP with the modular Beckhoff bus terminal system, which offers over 400 different signal types. The Compact bus coupler series is characterised by slim housings and cost-optimised design.
The BK9055 Compact bus couplers allow inexpensive connection of the Beckhoff I/O system to EtherNet/IP networks.
Key features of BK9055 Compact bus couplers:
- Software-compatible to the BK9105 EtherNet/IP bus coupler from Beckhoff, which has a second RJ 45 port
- Suitable for use in industrial Ethernet systems
- Also available for PROFINET (BK9053) and Ethernet (BK9050)
- In addition to Ethernet TCP/IP, also supports Modbus TCP as well as cyclic data exchange in accordance with the EtherCAT Automation Protocol (EAP)
