Product Description

Beckhoff switch terminals for Ethernet have enabled the use of a modular system on the industrial floor. Specially made to be used in an EtherCAT terminal network, the switch terminals are used to connect decentralized random Ethernet devices. The Beckhoff EtherCAT terminal system uses an Ethernet connection to facilitate collision-free communication between connected devices. Note that the Beckhoff switch terminals do not require any configuration and can be positioned at any point on the EtherCAT network.

The EL6601 is a switch terminal designed and manufactured by Beckhoff. It can be used as a virtual, field distributed switch in an industrial environment to bring, among other benefits, automatic detection of crossed lines and automatic baud rate detection. The EL6601 has a single Ethernet port and a 10BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Ethernet interface. Permissible conditions include an operating temperature range of -25 to 60 degrees Celsius and a storage temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. To help the switch meet the demanding speed requirements during operation, it has a data transfer rate of 10/100 Mbits per second. To ease troubleshooting and monitoring, the EL6601 features LEDS to indicate operating statuses such as Run and Ethernet error.

To enable real-time and smooth communication between the Beckhoff EL6601 and other Beckhoff network devices, the network switch supports network variables (specially configured Ethernet frames). The EL6601 draws its power from the E-bus, has a typical current consumption of 310 mA, and has 500 V electrical isolation between the E-bus and the Ethernet. For the EL6601 to reach optimal performance, it has to be mounted and operated in an environment with an ambient non-condensing relative humidity of 95%.

Frequently Asked Questions about EL6601


Q: What is the EL6601 switch terminal used for?

A: The EL6601 switch terminal is used for the decentralized connection of random Ethernet devices to the EtherCAT terminal network.

Q: What are the configuration required before the EL6601 can be used?

A: The EL6601 can be used directly as it is received, there is no configuration required. Also, any number of EL6601 terminal switch can be used in the EtherCAT terminal network at once.

Q: What are the operating modes of the EL6601 terminal switch?

A: The EL6601 has two operating mode. The real-time data exchange mode and the no-rea time data exchange mode. These two operating modes can be active simultaneously.

Q: Can the EL6601 switch be used for the Ethernet Industial protocol?

A: The EL6601 switch terminal can not transport the EtherNet Indrustrial Protocol. However it is suitable for real-time operation with network variables.

Q: Can the EL6601 be repaired?

A: Wake industrial offer reliable repair services on the EL6601 swicth terminal. The repair is completed within 1 to 2 weeks, however customers can select the 4 days rush repair option.
