NX1P EtherCAT Master to Beckhoff EtherCAT Coupler
TigerLily posted a topic in NJ Series / Sysmac StudioHello! I am working on a quote for a new project that will use EtherCAT but also requires DeviceNet for some legacy components. Has anyone successfully used the Beckhoff EtherCAT coupler (EK1100) with the DeviceNet Master Terminal (EL6752) and an Omron PLC as the EtherCAT master? My concern is that the coupler will only communicate with the Beckhoff EtherCAT master, but since it is so much more expensive to get the new Omron parts to communicate DeviceNET i am hoping this could be an option. The equipment is extremely simple and price is a major consideration. Thank you!!!
