- Active-Low Inputs, Sinking Outputs (Low-Side Switching)
- 12 input and/or 12 output channels
- 0 to 35V DC I/O range
- 10 to 36V DC, 24V AC power
- Modbus-RTU high-speed RS-485
These modules provide twelve discrete input and/or output channels. Isolation separates the I/O, power, and network circuits. Network communication adheres to the industry-standard RS-485 Modbus RTU protocol. Both AC and DC power sources are supported with wide range, nonpolarized, diode-coupled terminals.
The open-drain outputs are intended for current-sinking or low-side switching applications. The buffered inputs are active-low. These models are the complement of the 904, 905, and 906 units which have open-source, high-side output switches and active-high inputs. Socketed pull-up resistors are easily removed or exchanged to satisfy your application requirements.
Combining flexible I/O types, wide I/O ranges, and a network interface in a single package, makes this instrument extremely powerful. Multi-channel design adds cost-efficiency and allows high-density mounting. Plus, safe, rugged construction makes these modules reliable for use in both control room and distributed field I/O applications. Custom module configurations are also possible (consult factory for details).
