Beckhoff has extended its range of IP 67 I/O modules with EP4374 EtherCAT Box, which combines two analog inputs and two analog outputs in a single device. The input and output channels can be parameterized independent of each other for such standard signals as 0 to 10 V, ±10 V, 0 to 20 mA and 4 to 20 mA. The resolution for the current and voltage signals is 16 bits; signed. As the module features a direct EtherCAT connection, 100 Mbps performance is maintained. Suitable for applications in confined spaces, the box measure 126 x 30 x 26,5 mm.
