The breakthrough technology EtherCAT P integrates EtherCAT communication and power supply for the system and peripherals into a single cable. In addition, EtherCAT P enables the transmission of power directly via the subscribers. The winning combination of high-performance and flexibility, coupled with the unlimited choice of topologies inherent to EtherCAT, makes this one-cable solution the optimal bus system for sensors, actuators and measuring technology:
- Separate power supply lines are eliminated
- Hardware and installation costs are reduced
- Installation space in drag chains, control cabinets and machines is minimized.
