ICP Australia is proud to introduce ICP DAS’s ECAT-2515 is 1-to-5 port EtherCAT junction slaves. They are designed for realizing flexible wiring by daisy chain and branch. The ECAT-2515 cannot be used as a standard Ethernet switch.
The ECAT-2515 comes in a compact size of 33 mm x 127 mm x 90 mm and has a plastic casing. Likewise, in terms of installation ECAT-2515 supports DIN-Rail mounting. Furthermore, the module is equipped to withstand harsh conditions as it has an operating temperature of -25 ~ +75°C with relative humidity of 10 ~ 90% RH, Non-condensing.
The main two benefits of ECAT-2515 are, firstly, it can translate daisy-chain to branch topology. This makes the cabling easier than daisy-chain topology. Secondly, the module improves debugging efficiency. If a slave device is not working or the cable is disconnected, the following slave devices on the same network all do not communicate with the
master controller. With EtherCAT junction slaves, all slave devices can be wired as separated sections. If one slave device failed, only the slave devices in the same section will be influenced. The EtherCAT junction slave keeps the slave devices on another section to communicate with the master controller. Debugging can be made separately, thus improving the debugging efficiency
