EtherCAT P

EtherCAT P supplements the EtherCAT technology with a process in which communication and supply voltages are transmitted on a common line. All EtherCAT properties are retained with this process.

Two supply voltages are transmitted per EtherCAT P line. The supply voltages are electrically isolated from each other and can therefore be switched individually. The nominal supply voltage for both is 24 VDC.

EtherCAT P uses the same cable structure as EtherCAT: a 4-core Ethernet cable with M8 connectors. The connectors are mechanically coded so that EtherCAT connectors and EtherCAT P connectors cannot be interchanged.

EtherCAT P Box modules

EtherCAT P Box modules are EtherCAT P slaves with degree of protection IP67. They are designed for operation in wet, dirty or dusty industrial environments.
