Shipping calculated at checkout.

    This USB2.0-compliant digital I/O unit extends the digital signal input and output of the PC’s USB port. Its compact design (188.0(W) x 78.0(D) x 30.5(H)) makes it easy to install the product within a panel or device using DIN rail mounting jigs, or on the floor or wall. This unit is compatible with digital input and output signals at 5 - 50VDC and features 16  opto-coupler isolated input channels (compatible with current sink output) and 16 opto-coupler isolated open-collector output channels (compatible with current sink type), equipped with output transistor protection circuit (surge voltage protection and over current protection). Windows driver library is supplied. You can use the unit as a data recording device for LabVIEW, with dedicated libraries.

    Screw fastening, magnet, DIN rail installations possible

    Installation on the floor / wall /ceiling is possible by screw fastening, magnet, rubber feet, etc. In addition, a DIN rail mounting mechanism is equipped as standard with the product, making it easy to install the product within a panel or a device.

    Compact design allows flexible installation

    Compact design (188.0(W) x 78.0(D) x 30.5(H)) does not require special installation requirements.

    Easy-to-wire terminal connector

    The terminal connector (with screws) allows easy wiring.

    Optocoupler isolated input (compatible with current sink output)

    This unit has 16 channels of optocoupler isolated inputs, compatible with 5 - 50 VDC current sink output whose response speed is 200µsec. 16 channels share one common. As the power to run the opto-couplers is supplied internally, no external power supply is required.

    Optocoupler isolated open-collector outputs (compatible with current sink type)

    This unit has 16 opto-coupler isolated open-collector output channels (current sink type) whose response speed is 200µsec, supporting driver voltages of 5- 50 VDC for I/O. The output rating is max.100mA per channel. Common terminal provided per 8 channels, capable of supporting a different external power supply.

    Opto-coupler bus isolation

    As the USB I/F on PC is isolated from the input and output interfaces by opto-couplers, this unit has excellent noise performance.
