PLC discrete I/O modules allow monitoring and control of ON/OFF signals and devices that switch DC/AC power, such as limit switches and other sensors, indicating lights, power relays, pumps, motor starters and contactors. Twelve different discrete modules including DC in, AC in, DC out, and relay out are available for the DirectLOGIC 05 micro PLC.
Add up to 16 more discrete I/O points to the DL05 by installing an option module. Choose from twelve different discrete modules, including DC in, AC in DC out, DC in/out, and relay out.
The 16-point option modules can connect to a variety of ZIPLink modules, including the low-cost feedthrough terminals, optional fuse, LED and even ZIPLink relay modules. The powerful 10A ZIPLink relay system will allow a DL05 to connect to high-current loads like contactors, solenoids and hydraulic valves. (See ZIPLink section for our "five-second wiring solution.")
NOTE: New option modules may not be supported by CPUs purchased prior to the modules release.
Be sure to check for the latest firmware for your PLC. You can refer to the module specification page on our Web site for this information, or find it in our free catalog.
