The EL7201-0010 Servo Terminal I/O from Beckhoff Automation (Savage, MN) supports One Cable Technology (OCT), combining power and feedback signals into one cable. The terminals from the Beckhoff EtherCAT I/O system integrate a complete servo amplifier for motors up to 200W in a High-Density (HD) terminal housing measuring 12 mm wide. In addition to motion control improvements, the user benefits from EtherCAT advantages such as short cycle times, low jitter, and simple diagnostics. Monitoring of numerous parameters such as overvoltage and undervoltage, overcurrent, terminal temperature, or motor load via the calculation of an I²T model is enabled.
