EtherCAT – The comprehensive program


EtherCAT-P-connectors from ESCHA facilitate a common data- and power supply via the compact M8x1-interface.

With immediate effect, we offer a comprehensive connector program for EtherCAT-P-applications. The four-pole connection cables and device interfaces with P-coding facilitate a common data- and power supply via the industrially proven and comparably compact M8x1-interface. All new components dispose of a reliable 360°-shielding according to IEC 61076-2-114 standard. The typical EtherCat P black-red cable is UL-approved adapted for trouble-free applications on the North American market.

About EtherCAT P

EtherCAT P is an extension of the EtherCAT-technology facilitating the use of the four-wire standard cable not only for data transmission but also for power supply leading to a cost-effective and compact wiring as well as low system budget. The recently developed P-coding averts accidental connection of standard-EtherCAT-slaves.

Entirely new developed

In order to enable high availability and performance, we have made a point of details throughout the entire development process. For example, the shielding connection, the 360°-shielding concept and the wire connection. The new EtherCAT-P-connectors comprise so much knowledge that it is not only about another coding but an entirely new development.

The comprehensive EtherCAT-P-program

At market launch, we offer you a comprehensive EtherCAT-P-program consisting of connection- and junction cables as well as matching receptacles respectively available in straight or angled housing styles as male or female versions. All components are adapted for a power transmission up to 4A at concurrent Fast-Ethernet-transmission up to 100Mbit/s. The black-red cable is available as AWG22- and AWG24-variants.

For all EtherCAT-standard applications, we have four-pole M8x1-connectors with A-coding, four-pole M12x1-connectors with D-coding as well as RJ45-connectors at your disposal.
