EP2038-000x | 8-channel digital output 24 V DC, IMAX = 2 A (∑ 4 A), with diagnostics

The EP2038 EtherCAT Box with digital outputs connects binary control signals from the controller on to the actuators at the process level. The eight outputs handle load currents of up to 2 A each, although the total current is limited to 4 A. This makes these modules particularly suitable for applications in which not all of the outputs are active at the same time, or in which not all of the actuators draw 2 A signal current.

The signal state is indicated by means of light emitting diodes. The EP2038 offers output diagnostics in the form of short circuit and open circuit detection per channel. The signals are optionally connected via M8 (EP2038-0001) or M12 (EP2038-0002) screw type connectors.
