The XBI 01 ( miXed BLOCK Input
Output) is a BLOCK type module that includes two separate
sections: one designed to set and visualize 8 optocoupled outputs
(open collector transistor type) managed by as many TTL digital
lines,that came into the module and another designed to acquire
and visualize 8 optocoupled inputs ( NPN
type) and to convert them in as many TTL digital lines,
that came out from the module.
The outputs and power supply of TTL section are connected to a standard 20 pins I/O ABACO® connector allowing to interface the several grifo® cards, provided of at least 16 TTL input lines, like GPC® 150, GPC® 552, GPC® 15R, GPC® 188F, PIO 01, IPC 52, GPC® 154, GPC® 884, GPC® 323, GPC® 183, etc. The module connection with these cards is directly performed with a 20 wires flat cable, as the FLT 20+20 or FLT 26+20 accessories.
The eight 3 A transistor outputs are available on a 12 pins quick release screw terminal connectors. Remarkable and really efficient is the protection offered by back EMF diodes on the power transistors, especially usefull in case of inductive loads: it is sufficient the connection of positive supply voltage of the loads always on the described connector.
The 8 optocoupled inputs are available on a 12 pins quick release screw terminal connector. Through this same connector it is also possible to supply the input optocouplers: a proper on board section generates this supply voltage by using the standard voltages available in the electric panels.
The typical applications of the module are all the on/off driving of small and medium power devices as electric valves, power relays, signal buffers, electric locks, etc. and the acquisition of contacts as relays, push buttons, selector switches, proximity, limit switches, allarms, etc.
The board features some LEDs that provide the user a visual feed back about the status of the 8+8 signals of the XBI 01 module and optocoupler power supply voltage.
XBI 01 is delivered with a plastic mount for DIN 46277-1 and DIN 46277-3 rails and it doesn't require any software management.
