- Support daisy chain and star connection
- EtherCAT conformance test tool verified
- ESD Protection 4 KV Contact for each port
Benefit 1: Translate Daisy-chain to Branch Topology
EtherCAT junction slaves can realize branch topology. They make the cabling easier than daisy-chain topology.
Benefit 2: Improving the Debugging Efficiency
If a slave device is not working or the cable is disconnected, the following slave devices on the same network all not communicate with the master controller.
With EtherCAT junction slaves, all slave devices can be wired as separated sections. If one slave device is failed, only the slave devices on the same section will be influenced. The EtherCAT junction slave keeps the slave devices on another section communicate with the master controller. Debugging can be made separately, thus improving the debugging efficiency.
