Powering the Digital Transformation with EtherCAT
The IECS-1116-DI is an industrial EtherCAT slave I/O module equipped with the EtherCAT protocol for today's distributed industrial applications. The IECS-1116-DI provides high-density digital input channels and is protected with 3750 V DC isolation. Its compact size and DIN-rail mounting make installation in a cabinet easy. Pluggable terminal blocks and LED indicator help users to maintain and set up their system.
The IECS-1116-DI is an ideal high-speed distributed system solution which provides quick installation, real-time connection status monitoring, and wide-ranging power input and operating temperature to improve work efficiency, making them suitable for the harsh environment. Besides, the module comes with 2 10/100BASE-TX RJ45 ports. Through the EtherCAT technology, a network of up to 65,535 devices can be supported without the limitation of the type of topology -- line, bus, tree, star or any arrangement - -being used.
An EtherCAT slave is an electronic device that carries out cyclical sequences of calculations and/or data copying tasks at a certain interval (cycle). The EtherCAT slave working cycle (e.g. in the range of a few µs up to several ms) can be derived from different sources. EtherCAT node can measure time difference between leaving and returning frame. With distributed clocks, EtherCAT can realize a precise synchronization time of <1us between each slave module.
Convenient and Reliable Power System
The IECS-1116-DI is equipped with one 3-pin DC power input connector with screws for power supply installation. With power magnetic protection design, it can avoid the device burnout due to wrong wiring. In addition, it also possesses an integrated power supply source with wide-ranging voltages (9 to 48V DC) for worldwide high availability applications.
Environmentally Hardened Design
With the IP40 metal industrial case, the IECS-1116-DI provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets without air conditioning. It features a ventilated construction in which a cooling fan is not necessary, thereby making its operation noiseless. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75°C, the IECS-1116-DI can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
