GX Series EtherCAT I/O Modules

A wide variety of high-speed EtherCAT I/O Slaves.

Omron provides an extensive lineup of digital, analog and pulse I/O modules for EtherCAT.

The digital I/O modules have high-speed input functionality, with ON/OFF delays of 200 μs max. This gives you the full advantage of EtherCAT’s fast cycle times. Expansion Units attached to the Digital I/O Unit to expands the I/O points. Each input has an adjustable filter to cope with noise or contact chattering if required.

All GX-series slaves support automatic and manual address setting. Manual addressing by rotary switches allows easy system expansion or modification without re-programming the control system.
