Sontheim - Model DI40 - Digital IO Modules
The module has a compact aluminum case and can be mounted to a TS35 top hat rail. The interfaces are located on the front panel for a quick and comfortable cabling. All sensors can be connected to the module via 3-pole connection technique that avoids wrong harnessing and the use for an additional power supply. In addition to that there are LED clamps available that show connection directly at the clamp. The baud rate and address can easily be adjusted via hex-switches.
Signal processing and CAN
Besides its inputs and outputs our IO devices possess a powerful microcontroller for gathering and controlling sensors, actors and the CAN-data. Safety measures such as Guarding are completely integrated for a maximum of process safety. The CAN-interface is designed in accordance to CANopen DS 310 and 401 and allows the use in different positions of the network.
The IO module needs a power supply of 24V. Any type of damage to the device by faulty connected power is avoided with the help of a reverse polarity protection. The control unit is additionally protected against current peaks by an EMI circuit on the supply voltage.
