I'm wondering if I can use a lower cost Ethercat I/O module (rather than the name brand Bekhoff ones). Has anyone used/tried this?

Can be used, but you need to write your own driver

The question is whether the HW is well done. If the inputs and outputs are well protected, if there are no firmware errors, missing EEPROM and so on.

Connecting the system to an IgH EtherCAT master should not be a problem. All you have to do is write a configuration XML file. It's not complicated for an I/O coupler.
