*1. This depends on the specifications of the EtherCAT master. For example, the values are as follows when the EtherCAT
      Coupler Unit is connected to the built-in EtherCAT port on an NJ5-series CPU Unit: 500 μs, 1,000 μs, 2,000 μs, and
      4,000 μs. Refer to the NJ/NX-series CPU Unit Built-in EtherCAT Port User’s Manual (Cat. No. W505) for the
      specifications of the built-in EtherCAT ports on NJ/NX-series CPU Units.
*2. This depends on the Unit configuration.

Recommended EtherCAT Communications Cables

Use Straight STP (shielded twisted-pair) cable of category 5 or higher with double shielding (braiding and aluminum foil tape) for EtherCAT.
