SM 321 digital input module

Overview

Digital inputs For connecting standard switches and two-wire proximity switches (BERO)

Area of application Digital input modules can be used to connect the PLC to digital process signals. They are suitable for connecting standard switches and two-wire proximity switches (BERO). Design Digital input modules feature the following mechanical characteristics:

Compact design: The rugged plastic housing contains: Green LEDs for indicating the signal status at the inputs. Socket for the front connector, protected, behind the front door. Labeling field on the front door. Easy installation: There are no slot rules, the addresses of the inputs are determined by the slot. When used in ET 200M in combination with active bus modules, hot swapping is possible. User-friendly wiring.

The modules are available with 8, 16, 32, or 64 channels. Functions Digital input modules convert the level of the external digital signals from the process to the internal signal level of the controller. Various input voltages support the connection of different process signals:

24 V DC 48 to 125 V DC 120/230V AC For use in isochronous mode Process and diagnostic alarms Use for current sourcing or current sinking

Apart from cost-effective, easy-to-handle modules, modules with special functions are also available:

Special modules are also available for process engineering which, for example, support the NAMUR standard. Technical specifications
