S-LINK V Gateway
Panasonic SL-VGU1-EC Gateway Controller supports EtherCAT, a high-speed communications system that is rapidly gaining popularity. Bit information of various sensors and switches is sent directly to the EtherCAT. With no limit to the number of branches, layout design can be done simply without any wiring constraints thanks to the multiplication of control points (maximum of 512 points and 256 nodes, the largest in its class). Simple and dependable communication protocols enable fast communication speed. We've also realized an extended communication range of 800 m 2,624 ft maximum (when in C mode). Because there are 3 different communication modes to choose from, you never have to change models even if the worksite or the equipment changes.
