Performance Specifications

Inputs

Configuration (active-low inputs): 96 channels (six 16-ch ports) with a common return (RTN). Each input is connected in tandem with open-drains of output mosfets. Any mix of I/O occurs as all channels are high impedance inputs unless written. Output channels can be read back at any time (loopback monitoring).
Input Signal Voltage Range: 0 to 28VDC, 31V maximum. Surge protected.
Input Threshold Detection and Sensitivity: 4V DC threshold. Level or latching inputs.
Input “Wetting” Current: Built-in current sources switch from 16mA initially (20ms) to 2mA (continuous), default mode. Sources can be changed to 2mA or turned off.
Internal Excitation (default): 6V DC, 400mA
External Excitation: 6 to 28V DC typical. Separate excitation terminal (logic) for each 16-channel port. Internal and external supplies are diode-blocked from each other. Includes reverse polarity protection.

Output “OFF” Voltage Range: 0 to 28V DC, 31V maximum. Surge protected.
Output “ON” Current Range: 0 to 300mA DC continuous, each output.
Output “ON” Maximum Current: 450mA DC maximum with any 8 channels “on” continuously per 16 channel port

  • 96 discrete I/O channels: Bi-directional channels support any input/output mix in a single unit.
  • High-density stackable unit: Stacked mounting puts a lot of I/O in a very small footprint to save panel space.
  • High speed channel updates: Updates all 96 channels in 1mS.
  • Modbus TCP/IP or UDP/IP protocol: I/O functions as slave to host controller.
  • Peer-to-peer i2o communication: Inputs to one unit automatically update outputs on another over Ethernet link.
  • Change-of-state or timed updates: Event-driven updates transmit data in less than 5mS between peers with i2o.
  • 10 Modbus TCP/IP sockets/sessions: Multiple masters can talk to an EtherStax unit at the same time.
  • Self-test checks I/O operation: Test I/O channels from a web browser before wiring terminals to devices.
  • Selectable input “wetting” current: Internal current source eliminates pull-ups and improves dry contact interface.
  • Automatic change of state detection: Inputs detect quick momentary changes of state that occur between polling.
  • Internal or external port excitation: Selectable source on each 16-channel port simplifies wiring and adds flexibility for use with 5-28V DC logic.
  • Loop-back monitoring on all channels: Inputs confirm output states for increased system reliability.
  • Watchdog timers and failsafe outputs: Communication fault sends output to a pre-defined state or holds the last value.
  • Output open-load detection: Output fault detection is selectable on individual channels.
  • Thermal, current, voltage protection: I/O is protected from excessive levels to reduce downtime.
