PB16DI – 16 Digital Input Module

PB16DI – 16 Digital Input Module

The PB16DI module is a 16 channel digital input module. The inputs are isolated from the logic by bi-directional opto-couplers. The inputs are divided into 2 isolated groups of 8 inputs each. This allows for a number of configurations in which the input module may be used. One such configuration could be where one group is connected as common positive and the second group connected as common negative.

The counters operate in three modes:

In mode 0: All the counters are disabled.

In mode 1: The counters are 32 bit counters allowing a count value from 0 to 4294967295. The count value can be cleared by writing a zero to the associated registers or preset to any other value using the same method.

In mode 2: The inputs are connected as up/down counters. Input 1 will increment counter 1 whilst input 2 decrements counter1. In the same way, inputs 3&4 operate counter 2, inputs 5&6 operate counter 3 and inputs 7&8 operate counter 4, etc.

The format of the registers allows the status of the inputs to be read as either single bits or all at once as a single register on the Modbus network.
