DIF16 Discrete Input Field Terminator

This product has been discontinued. This web page is provided so current customers using the product can have a quick reference for specifications. Please contact Automation Electronics for current products that may meet your needs.

The DIF16 board contains 16 optically coupled discrete inputs.

Each input termination of the DIF16 board is completely transient protected and optically coupled to isolate surge currents and voltages from entering the main circuit board. The DIF16 board provides R/C filtering and logic level conversion components to convert noisy input signals into clean logic levels which the processor can read without error.

The DIF16 board has protection ground and field sourcing voltage terminal blocks. Proper fusing is also provided to protect the circuit. Each channel has an LED which turns on when an input field contact has been generated. Two power indicating LEDs are also included. They are lit when power has been applied to the board.

The DIF16 board connects to our Micro Expander Bus (MEB) board through a 16 pin ribbon cable.
