Opto 22’s SNAP-UDC-HDB-G4 and SNAP-UDC-HDB breakout boards are designed to boost the capabilities of 32-point SNAP digital I/O modules, simplify field wiring, and save panel space for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and machine builders. With the SNAP-UDC-HDB-G4 breakout board users can connect 32-point SNAP digital I/O modules to higher loads for fused outputs and isolated inputs. These modules can provide up to 3 amps current switching or sensing per point, fused outputs, isolated inputs, and per-point LED indicators, depending on the G4 modules selected. For example, using G4 digital output modules on the breakout board lets a 32-point module switch up to 12 times its regular current load of 0.25 amps. Spring-clamp connectors secure field wiring and reduce installation time.

The SNAP-UDC-HDB breakout board provides spring-clamp connectors for up to 32 field devices in a small footprint. The SNAP-UDC-HDB breakout board consolidates wiring for a 32-point SNAP digital I/O module into a 4.0-. x 3.3-in. (101 x 83 mm) board, which simplifies installation, reduces labor costs, and saves valuable space inside enclosures and machines. The SNAP-UDC-HDB board features LED indicators that show point status and are invaluable for troubleshooting and maintenance. The spring-clamp connectors hold field wiring securely in place.
