Digital Module for Remote I/O
Provides digital input or output channels for remote I/O systems. Remote I/O modules must be used with a supported NI real-time controller.
Digital Modules for Remote I/O provide 24 V digital inputs or outputs and offer 1‐, 2‐, 3‐, and 4‐wire spring terminal connection options. You can use inputs as counters or standard digital inputs, and you can adjust filter time to improve measurement quality. Inputs can include a built‐in power supply for sensors. Output modules feature circuit and overload protection and can drive up to 500 mA per channel, up to 8 A per module.A remote I/O system consists of an EtherCAT bus coupler and individual modules mounted on a DIN rail. You control the Digital Module for Remote I/O from a NI real‐time controller. You can use remote I/O hardware to add low‐cost I/O for simple tasks while your controller handles advanced tasks such as image processing, motion control, and high‐speed or specialty measurements.
