The ER series I/O modules in die-cast zinc housings are designed for use in harsh environmental conditions, for example, in the heavy-duty and automotive industries and robotics. 

Together with the EP and EQ module series, the EtherCAT Box I/O system covers a range of signals for all industrial applications and is intended for use outside of control cabinets. Utilising die-cast zinc as the housing material, the IP 67 rated I/O modules can be used in harsh industrial and process environments. 

The ER series modules are compatible with the EP series and offer the same I/O selection: digital inputs with various filters, digital outputs with 0.5 A output current, and ‘combination modules’ with freely configurable digital inputs or outputs. Analogue input modules for current/voltage measurement are also available. The range is supplemented by temperature measurement modules, serial interfaces, encoder inputs and motion modules.
