Measurement technology modules
The ELM series EtherCAT measurement technology modules are designed to lower the use of raw materials and energy in machine and plants while forming the basis for advanced condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. The ELM modules integrate directly into the EtherCAT I/O system and other terminals. The metal housings of the series optimize shielding and cooling in measurement technology applications. The metal enclosure of the ELM series features a flexible connector front-end for all standard measurement technology interfaces. The hardware ensures high-quality measurement data with the full utilization of EtherCAT features including: 24 bit resolution, sampling rates of up to 50,000 samples per second, high-precision timing, high-precision values, and integration connection and functional diagnostics in individual modules. The ranges of the input channels can be parameterized, both electrically and on the software side.
