Beckhoff's EtherCAT Coupler With ID Switch, Fast Hot Connect
EK1101-0080 EtherCAT Coupler with Fast Hot Connect is complemented by the EK1122-0080 EtherCAT junction with Fast Hot Connect. Hot Connect is an EtherCAT feature for changing topologies through direct coupling or uncoupling during system operation. Coupled EtherCAT components are already quickly linked to the data communication after connection as standard. Fast Hot Connect technology further reduces the connection time significantly, enabling even faster tool changes.
