NX-series EtherCAT Coupler Unit


Flexible System Can Be Achieved with Highspeed, High-precision Remote I/O for EtherCAT

• Up to 63 NX-IO Units can be connected to one EtherCAT Coupler Unit. Standard and high-performance units can be mixed.*1

• High-speed remote I/O control is possible at the fastest communication cycle of 125 us.*2

• Each Coupler plus its I/O form just a single EtherCAT node on the network.

• I/O control and safety control can be integrated by connecting Units for safety.

• The Coupler supports the EtherCAT Distributed Clock (DC) and propagates this to synchronous I/O units.

• The node address can be fixed by rotary switches, or set by software. Choose the method that best suits your way of engineering.

• Slave configuration by Sysmac Studio can be done centrally via the controller, or on-the-spot using the Coupler's built-in USB port.
