The ECoSlink Terminal will be connected to the ECoS or central station® via the provided bus cable to the „extend" jack. It offers on the front panel two jacks for hand controllers (e.g. mobile station®) and at the back four sockets for devices mounted under the layout. These include mainly ECoSBoost booster and ECoSDetector feedback modules.
The ECoSlink Terminal can provide power to all attached devices either from the ECoS power supply, or for a section from an external power supply through the ECoSlink themselves. This is especially useful for larger systems with many hand controls, boosters and feedback modules.
If more than one ECoSlink Terminal is used, the terminals can be connected to each other with standard Ethernet patch cables with RJ45 connectors. These patch cables can be purchased in any computer store in any length.
