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.
