With the Ethercat Gateway BL20-E-GW-EC extended Turck the functionality of his I / O system BL20, The compact gateway from the Economy range enables the fastest data transfer rates for real-time applications, such as those required for axis synchronization or for time-critical positioning tasks in the packaging industry. Turck's BL ident RFID system will also be integrated into Ethercat networks for the first time via the new gateway.
Together with the existing gateways for Modbus TCP and Ethernet / IP as well as the new Profinet model, BL20 fieldbus interfaces are now available for the most common Ethernet bus protocols. With the compact BL20 Economy Gateways, Turck is supporting the trend towards decentralization and enables flexible control solutions even with limited space available. The only 33 mm wide gateways have a power supply unit, a switch and two RJ45 sockets on board, significantly reducing the installation effort.
Despite the small size, the economy gateways offer the full functionality of the BL20 stations. Combined with easy-to-replace electronics or economy modules with up to 32 I / O channels, the BL20 family supports a variety of signal types - from digital and analog inputs / outputs to PWM counter modules and direct and reversing starters towards RFID modules. This makes it possible to implement tailor-made solutions for the IP20 area independently of the fieldbus.
