Sixnet adds analog outputs to combination I/O module

Sixnet reports that its new ST-MIX12884 SixTrak combination I/O module offers 12 discrete inputs, eight discrete outputs, eight analog inputs, and four analog outputs.


Sixnet reports that its new ST-MIX12884 SixTrak combination I/O module offers 12 discrete inputs, eight discrete outputs, eight analog inputs, and four analog outputs. It can be used in applications with a mix of I/O types, when panel space is limited, or when lowest cost is an important requirement, Sixnet says. Up to 20 of these modules can be connected to a high-speed I/O bus of Sixnet's controllers, RTUs, and I/O gateways.

The module's discrete I/O features include optional sinking and sourcing and adjustable threshold voltage on some discrete inputs. Also, up to eight counters can be configured with a flexible choice of modes. Discrete outputs can source up to 1 Amp each, and the first channel can be configured as a watchdog that will indicate if there is a system problem. The analog inputs offer 16-bit A/D converters for precision measurements. Each analog input is protected with a self-resetting fuse and can detect and report an open instrumentation loop. Standard range is 4-20 mA, but voltage ranges are also available. Analog outputs are also 16 bits and 4-20 mA for accurate process control.

Sixnet I/O is engineered to withstand harsh industrial environments. ST-MIX12884 module is vibration- and surge-resistant, operates in temperatures ranging from -40 to +70 °C, and is rated CE, UL, CSA, and hazardous locations Class 1, Division 2 (Zone 2). The module also has been tested by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) for marine and offshore use.
