EtherCAT Bridge Terminal EL6692
The EtherCAT bridge terminal EL6692 enables data exchange between EtherCAT strands with different masters. It also enables synchronisation of the distributed clocks of the individual strands. The power supply on the primary side (E-bus) comes from the E-bus, on the secondary side (RJ 45) via an external connection. If several EL6692 are used, data traffic to the terminals on the other side can continue in the event of a power supply failure on one side. The bridge terminal can also be used for integrating a subordinate PC system as an EtherCAT slave.
The bit width in the process image is 16 bit SYNC input + IO input/output with a maximum of 480 bytes in each direction.
