EK9160 IoT Bus Coupler


EK9160 IoT Bus Coupler establishes a direct connection to the cloud without any special control program between EtherCAT I/O and the Internet of Things. As a result, the coupler enables simple and standardized integration of I/O data with cloud-based communication and data services.


It converts the E-bus signal representation to different IoT communication protocols and enables in this way the simple and standardized integration of I/O data into cloud-based communication and data services. Neither a controller nor prior programming is necessary. The I/O data transmission can be parameterized in a user-friendly configuration dialog of the integrated webserver providing access via any browser. The required cloud services and security functions (authentication, encryption, etc.) can also be conveniently configured using a browser. Following parameterization, the coupler autonomously transmits the digital or analog I/O values to the cloud service, including a timestamp.
