The new EtherCAT plug-in modules for motion applications expand the application spectrum of Beckhoff EJ series I/O in mass-produced machinery. Courtesy: Beckhoff AutomationEJ-series EtherCAT plug-in I/O modules provide an efficient wiring solution for machines built in large and medium-sized production runs. The EJ-series plug-in modules make it easy to implement a platform concept for large-volume production runs without sacrificing customization capabilities. The modules, with electronics based on the popular EtherCAT I/O system, are directly inserted into an application-specific signal distribution board that transmits signals and power to the individual connectors.
