The D1712M digital input-output provides computer monitoring and control of industrial on/off signals. The modules provide fifteen I/O bits for sensing contact closures and controlling relays or annunciators.
The D1712M modules contain fifteen discrete digital I/O bits. Each bit is user selectable as either a digital input or digital output. Each input bit can monitor digital signals between 0-30Vdc. The outputs can be pulled up to +30Vdc and drive 100mA loads without damage.
Enhanced features of the D1712M include a communications watchdog timer, user-programmable starting value for each digital output bit, and a continuous peer-to-peer configuration using two modules. The peer-to-peer mode allows two modules to communicate digital input status from one location to another. A digital input module can communicate its input status to a digital output module that will automatically reproduce the status levels on its digital outputs.
This module can be mounted using the DIN-Rail Mount Kit.
