MODELS FEATURED THIS MONTH – M200, M240, M250, M260
The M200 baseboard module connects eI/O family interface modules to
digital control boards (e.g. Sealevel’s PIO series of boards and
USB adapters) via a 50-pin ribbon cable. This cabling is backward compatible
with PB-24/32 connections. System power can be input from the ribbon
cable, an external 5VDC input or external 9VDC to 30VDC input using
the on-board regulator. On-board LEDs indicate input power status and
connection of up to four eI/O modules.
Opto-isolated Input Module
M240 modules provide 8 channels of optically isolated inputs for monitoring
a variety of real-world devices. Inputs can range from 12-24VAC/DC and
field wiring is connected via two removable 8-pin terminal blocks. For
convenience connecting ground signals, “commoning” jumpers
are provided that tie each input’s ground connection to common.
Status of each input (on/off) is displayed via on-board LEDs.
Opto-isolated Output Module, Sinking
The M250 is an optically-isolated open-collector output module designed
to control up to 24VDC devices. 500VDC isolation protects electronics
from over-voltage damage. Connection to field wiring is accomplished
via a 10-pin removable terminal block. Output state of each bit is displayed
via on-board LEDs. Requires power supplied to field terminal block from
external supply such as the optional PS101.
Reed Relay Module
The M260 provides 8 SPST (Form A) dry contact Reed relay outputs. Reed
relays provide high quality, long life switch closures and are well
suited for low current applications. Field wiring connections are made
to the module via two removable 8-pin screw terminal blocks. On-board
LEDs indicate status of each relay (open/closed).
