The PIO2 board is a digital I/O board with 16 channels. Each channel features a high side and low side driver with a 500-mA capacity. The high side drivers can either switch between the internal 5 V or external voltages of up to 32 V. The channels can be switched individually or in groups. In addition, the firmware can output frequencies of up to 12 kHz to the outputs.
Each channel can be configured as an input. A comparator generates the high/low status of the applied signals using a programmable trigger threshold. This allows the digital information to be read and the logic level to be checked.
Communication with digital assemblies
Integration of PLC into the test system
Direct switching of the relay, solenoid valves etc.
