Note

Risk of damage to the device!

Bring the EtherCAT/EtherCAT P system into a safe, powered down state before starting installation, disassembly or wiring of the modules!

Two M8 sockets at the upper end of the modules are provided for supply and downstream connection of EtherCAT P:

The metal threads of the M8 EtherCAT P sockets are internally linked to the FE connection via high impedance RC combination. See chapter Functional earth (FE).
