The MODBUS-Slim range is a cost effective solution when compact high-IO count Modbus solution is required. The MOD-16DI has 16 opto-isolated digital inputs , 2 of which can accept quad encoders. Each input can also support pulse counting, stored in non-volatile memory so the count is retained following a power failure. Can be configured for Modbus ASCII or RTU. Programmed via USB connection.
The MOD-16DI-M has 16 digital inputs with configurable timer/counter option. In addition, terminals IN1 and IN2 and IN3 and IN4 can be used to connect two encoders. All inputs and outputs are isolated from the logic system by optocouplers. Each channel can be individually configured in one of several modes.This module is connected to the RS485 bus with twisted-pair wire. Communication is via MODBUS RTU or MODBUS ASCII. The baud rate is configurable from 2400 to 115200.
The module is designed for mounting on a DIN rail in accordance with DIN EN 5002. The module is equipped with a set of LEDs used to indicate the status of inputs and outputs useful for diagnostic purposes and helping to find errors.
Module configuration is done via USB by using a dedicated free Modbus Configurator software. You can also change the parameters using the MODBUS protocol.
The Slim series modules can be easily connected with each other via a ribbon cable. Just connect the power and RS485 to the first module and ribbon cable connect the remaining modules to form a compact IO station without the wiring costs.
