*1. The E3X-ECT EtherCAT Sensor Communications Unit and the E3X-CRT CompoNet Sensor Communications Unit can be used.
*2. Use either the E3X-CN11 (master connector, 3 conductors) or the E3X-CN12 (slave connector, 1 conductor).
*3. The communications function and mutual interference prevention function are disabled when the detection mode is set to Super-high-speed mode (SHS).
When including E3X-DA-S with activated power tuning, mutual interference prevention is possible for up to 6 units.
When including E3X-MDA with activated power tuning, mutual interference prevention is possible for up to 5 units.
