The EL6001 serial interface enables the connection of devices with RS232 interface and operates in conformity with the CCITT V.28/DIN 66 259-1 standards. The device connected to the EL6001 EtherCAT Terminal communicates with the automation device via the coupler. The active communication channel operates independently of the higher-level bus system in full duplex mode at up to 115.2 kbaud. The RS232 interface guarantees high immunity to interference through electrically isolated signals.
In conjunction with the TwinCAT Virtual Serial COM Driver (see TwinCAT Supplements – Communication) the EL6001 can be used as a normal Windows COM interface.
