EMGZ491.ECAT – Single-Channel Amplifier for EtherCAT®

  • Simple integration into EtherCAT® networks
  • Easy configuration with parameter sets for demanding applications
  • Fast and precise – well suited for time-critical applications
  • Narrow DIN rail version for cabinet or sealed IP 65 wall mount for harsh environment. RJ45/M12 plugs

The EMGZ491.ECAT amplifier has been designed for use in modern EtherCAT® networks where a typical application involves the measurement or control of web tension in coating, laminating, printing, extrusion, or other similar roll to roll processes. Making full use of the EtherCAT® capabilities allows this amplifier to excel in high speed applications. An extensive range of parameters allows for quick and flexible configuration of the unit, and all functions are easily adjusted via EtherCAT® with an EtherCAT® Master. EtherCAT® is a registered trademark and patented technology, licensed by Beckhoff Automation GmbH, Germany.
