EK1521 | 1-port EtherCAT fibre optic junction

In conjunction with an EK1100 EtherCAT Coupler, the EK1521 1-port EtherCAT fibre optic junction enables conversion from 100BASE-TX to 100BASE-FX physics (glass fibre). Distances of up to 2 km can be bridged with the EK1521 and the EK1501 EtherCAT Coupler for multimode fibre optics. Even cable redundant systems with fibre optic can be realised using the 1-port EtherCAT fibre optic junction. The run LED shows the status of the EK1521.
