Compact IO Module DI-16-C

£135.85 Exc. VAT

The 16-channel digital input module is used to read and detect digital signals for indication, alarm, or impulse measurement purposes.

Digital open collector output module, 16 inputs, max 100mA/channel.

  • Screwless installation with click-on DIN-rail communication bus and power connectors
  • Push-in spring connectors for cables
  • Individually detachable terminal blocks per channel

The 16-channel digital input module is used to read and detect digital signals for indication, alarm, or impulse measurement purposes. Each channel can be individually configured, and has a green and red LED to show its current status. Connect the module to a serial Modbus master controller to get reliable and fast indications from your field equipment.

Below you will find a presentation of the Fidelix FdxCompact DI-16-C 16-Channel Digital Input module. How to connect, configure, use, communicate with, and interpret values and signals from the module.

T Bus connecter (Terminal C) required for MODBUS + and - connection along with other supply voltage 24VDC and consumes 15mA.
If more than 1 module is being installed, you only need one terminal connector, if connecting say 10 of the same or different modules, only one T Bus connector is required.

Communication: Modbus RTU (RS485) at speeds up to 57600 bps. Use no parity, 8 data bits and 1 stop bit. The module will auto-detect the communication speed of the bus (9600, 19200, 38400 or 57600 bps).
Modbus address: The address of the module can be set from 1 to 63 by changing the position of dip-switches 1-6. Each dip-switch represents a binary value, as indicated on the module and datasheet.
Modbus loop termination: On the last module, the Modbus loop must be closed by connecting a 120 Ω resistor between the A and the B side of the RS-485 loop.
