This BS-ETH/BS-USB module is available in versions with 32 or 64 inputs. AC optocouplers are used for the digital inputs. The module housing consists of a stable aluminum profile with DIN rail mounting.
- Ethernet interface 10/100 Mbit with electrical isolation
- USB 2.0 interface up to 480 Mbit
- 32/64 Digital inputs: 15V – 30V AC/DC (optional 5V – 15V)
- 16 bit counter (up to 100Hz) / flipflop per channel
- Robust aluminium housing (suitable for top hat rail mounting)
With our optocoupler inputs, digital signal states can be recorded within a voltage range of 5V to 30V AC or DC. Input and output circuits are galvanically isolated from each other up to 2.5kV.
Each input has a 16 bit counter that can count up to 65535 pulses. If the maximum counter value is exceeded, the counting process starts again from zero. By means of a software command, the current status of all input counters can be written simultaneously into a separate memory area.
Recording of status changes
Status changes that occur between the readout cycles are reliably detected by internal flip-flops and can be read out separately by software. In addition, such an event is signalled by a status LED. Resetting is done automatically after the flip-flops have been read out.
Each digital input and output has a separate LED that lights up when the signal state is active. Furthermore, the status of the operating voltage, the communication with the interface, error events or the occurrence of a timeout can be displayed.
A screwless system from the manufacturer WAGO Kontakttechnik is used as the connector. The 1-wire female connectors are 100% protected against mismating and have an eject and locking mechanism. All conductor types up to 1.5mm² can be connected.
