The USB-Optoin-8 is a compact USB 2.0 module with 8 optocoupler inputs for digital detection of voltages in the range of 5V to 30V. A number of status LEDs visualize the switching states of the optocouplers. The plastic housing with top-hat rail mounting facilitates installation in distribution cabinets. The connection wiring is made via two 8-pole plug-in screw terminals.
- 8 optocoupler inputs (5V-30V AC / DC)
- Galvanic isolation of the inputs via optocoupler
- 16 bit counter per channel (up to 100Hz)
- Filter for counter / flip-flops adjustable from 5ms – 255ms
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.
Pluggable screw terminals are used as connectors. Conductor cross-sections of up to 3.3mm² can be connected. The two flange screw connections provide additional support.
