Beckhoff EP6002-0002 | EtherCAT Box, 2-channel communication interface, serial, RS232/RS422/RS485, M12

The EP6002-0002 serial interface module allows the connection of devices with an RS232 or RS422/RS485 interface. The module transmits the data in a fully transparent manner to the higher-level automation device. The data is transferred via the fieldbus using a simple handshake protocol. This does not have any effect on the protocol of the serial interface. The active serial communication channel functions independently of the higher-level bus system in full duplex mode at up to 115,200 baud, while a 864 byte receive buffer and a 128 byte send buffer are available. The connector assignment depends on the interface. For each channel, RS232 or RS422/RS485 can be selected. In conjunction with the TwinCAT Virtual Serial COM Driver (see TwinCAT Supplements – Communication) the EP6002-0002 can be used as a normal Windows COM interface.
