The AutomationDirect line of DirectLogic option modules now includes new fault-protected output modules designed for the company’s DL205 PLCs. The F2-16TDxP 16-channel direct current output modules, available in sinking and sourcing configurations, feature 16 input points which are automatically assigned as fault status indicators for the corresponding outputs.

Equipped with electronic short circuit protection, the modules detect missing external 24 V dc, open load, overtemperature, and overcurrent load. The $119 protected output modules also feature user resettable fault conditions.
