The ECAT-2611 gateway module is a proven and trusted protocol converter, allowing you to seamlessly interconnect devices between EtherCAT and Modbus RTU networks. It acts as a slave on both, allowing I/O data to be neatly transferred between the two. The data exchange buffer that it provides gives easy and fast transfers, lending itself to a diverse range of applications.
Further, the ECAT-2611 can be used to connect non-networked industrial devices and equipment to an EtherCAT system. It allows serial-based RS-232/422/485 industrial devices and equipment to be easily integrated into an EtherCAT control system without the need to make any changes to the industrial device. Simply connect the ECAT-2611, configure the device, and you are ready to go.
