EL6695 | EtherCAT bridge terminal

The EL6695 EtherCAT bridge terminal enables real-time data exchange between EtherCAT Terminal strands with different masters. Asynchronous communication via AoE, FoE, EoE, NPI, etc. is also supported. Synchronisation of distributed clocks is possible in both directions. The EL6695 differs from the EL6692 (which will continue to be available) in terms of a flexible CoE configuration, a device emulation option and a significant increase in data throughput. A convenient configuration interface is available in the TwinCAT System Manager, as with the EL6692. The power supply for the secondary side (RJ45) is via an external connection, the primary side is supplied via the E-bus. The bridge terminal can also be used for integrating a subordinate PC system as an EtherCAT slave.
