R-ECAT is a bridge module with Fast-Ethernet interface for GDnet.
It controls 100 Mbps communication with the master controller on one side and powers and controls the modules installed on the R-BUS(x) backplane on the other, acquiring data from all the I/Os every 200μs for an average system.
It can control a maximum of 16 I/O modules. Two rotary switches on the front panel allow you to activate “Explicit Device Identification” (0 .. 159). The communication port has 2 RJ45 IN and OUT connectors complete with “activity” and “data” LEDs. R-ECAT is powered at 24 VDC via an extractable connector.
