The EtherCAT Box modules in protection class IP 67 extend the Beckhoff Fieldbus Box system. Through the integrated EtherCAT interface the modules can be connected directly to an EtherCAT network.

High EtherCAT performance is maintained right down to each IP 67 box
  • Each box is a 100 % EtherCAT device and a self-contained EtherCAT slave, which can be connected directly to any other EtherCAT device via an Ethernet cable
  • Robust design of the EtherCAT Box modules enables them to be used directly at the machine
  • Control cabinets and terminal boxes are no longer required
  • Fully sealed modules can withstand wet, dirty or dusty conditions
  • Pre-assembled cables significantly simplify EtherCAT and signal wiring
  • Commissioning is optimised
Field-configurable connectors and cables are available for maximum flexibility
Depending on the application, the sensors and actuators are connected via M8 or M12 screw-type connectors or D-sub plugs.

The EtherCAT modules cover the typical range of requirements for IP 67 I/O signals: digital inputs with different filters (3.0 ms or 10 μs), digital outputs with 0.5 and 2 A output current, combination modules with freely selectable inputs or outputs, analog inputs and outputs with 16-bit resolution, thermocouple and RTD inputs, and stepper motor modules.

XFC (eXtreme Fast Control Technology) modules, including inputs with time stamp, are also available. BECKHOFF Automation information and contact details
