Versatile communication options
The EtherCAT bus couplers (BL 270 series) support minimal cycle times down to 100µs. The system has excellent and highly precise timing characteristics through the use of distributed clocks.
CANopen modules are available as back-to-back modules with two interfaces with a maximum data transfer rate up to 1Mbit/s. The KeConnect modules can be operated remotely via a CANopen bus coupler.
Transfer rates up to 12 Mbit/s can be configured with the Profibus slave module.
SERCOS modules offer the possibility for fast, interference-free and synchronous communication with drives and IOs.
Serial interfaces have either one or two communication channels, which can be operated independently in full-duplex mode.
