The Novus DigiRail series of Modbus RTU IO modules are rugged, isolated DIN rail mount units for SCADA or PLC systems. The DigiRail-2A features 2 universal analog inputs that accept a wide variety of temperature sensors and analog signals.
|Input (each input programable):||Output:|
|J, K, T, E, N, R, S, B Thermocouples||Modbus RTU|
|0 to 50 mV||1,200 to 115,200 bps|
|0 to 20 mV||E/O/N parity|
|-10 to 20 mV|
|0 to 5 V ¹|
|0 to 10 V ¹||Power:|
|0 to 20 mA||10 to 35 VDC|
|4 to 20 mA||≤50 mA|
Note 1: The use of voltage scale inputs require moving jumpers inside the unit
The DigiRail units are configured over Modbus using a simple Windows utility (included on CD in the box and available from the Novus website). You will need a serial or USB to RS-485 converter to communicate with the unit from a PC.
- 2 Analog inputs programmable for thermocouples (J, K, T, E, N, R, S, B), Pt100, mV, V, mA
- Cold junction compensation for thermocouples and compensation for Pt100 3-wire cables
