Intrinsically safe I/O module intended to control electrovalves. The electrovalves can be controlled in a twomode or smooth way (i.e. proportional control). I/O ports can be also applied as general-purpose binary interfaces. Communication with the module is conducted via the RS485 bus. Compact stucture and M12 connectors applied allow for installation of the device outside the machine without necessity of additional protection against harsh environmental conditions.

The F3-24Ex module provides „ia” explosion protection level.

  • control of proportional valves – 7 high-current outputs, 6 low-current outputs (H bridge)
  • possible configuration of different mode of I/O channels: 13 digital inputs, 7 analog inputs
  • operating status signalling by LED diodes (status of I/O and RS485 ports)
  • Intrinsically safe construction enabling installation in a potentially explosive area
  • high resistance to mechanical vibrations and harsh environmental conditions
