The EL3054 analog input terminal processes signals in the range between 4 and 20 mA. The current is digitized to a resolution of 12 bits and is transmitted (electrically isolated) to the higher-level automation device. The input electronics are independent of the supply voltage of the power contacts. In the EL3054 with four inputs, the 24 V power contact is connected to the terminal in order to enable connection of 2-wire sensors without external supply. The power contacts are connected through. The signal state of the EtherCAT Terminal is indicated by light emitting diodes. The error LEDs indicate an overload condition and a broken wire.
