The Ethernet Port Adapter (EPA) Bluetooth and WLAN wireless modules from Phoenix Contact are being replaced by the EPA 2 generation models, with immediate effect.
These new adapters combine Bluetooth and WLAN transmission in a single robust module with degree of protection IP 65. Depending on the application, these compact modules can continue to be used with internal, but also with external antennas. The connections for Ethernet and power supply are established via M12 connections. Since these new wireless modules have the same dimensions, mounting holes and connections as the previous versions, replacing them is simple. Only the configuration needs to be adjusted.
With the Ethernet Port Adapter, your Ethernet-capable automation devices can communicate wirelessly with the control network in harsh industrial environments via Wireless LAN or Bluetooth. Protocol-transparent communication makes it easy to transmit different protocol types, such as Profinet, Modbus TCP, or EtherNet/IP. Even safety-related data signals can be wirelessly transmitted safely and reliably.
