The Beckhoff EK1561 is a single port Ethercat product that converts telegrams from 100BASE-TX to POF-based 100BASE-FX physics. Serving as a plastic optical fibre (POF) junction, it is connected to an E-bus to draw power while also enabling connection to a larger Ethernet-based 100BASE-TX network. POF cables are ideal for shorter distances (up to 50 meters) and are comparatively easier to wire on systems. To provide user feedback, the EK1561 features two LEDs indicating power and communication status. It operates optimally between -25 to +65 degrees Celsius, and if turned off, must be kept within a -40 to +85 degrees Celsius range. Consequently, Beckhoff's EK1561 serves as a pivotal element within a network undergoing the crucial conversion process in automation applications.
