ROB-24 Relay Output Card
- 24 SPDT, Form C Relays (DPDT optional)
- Fully compatible with any ACCES digital I/O card (except for IOD-64)
- 3A carry-current contact ratings on ROB-24 and 4A on ROB-24H
- Screw terminals for #14 through #22 AWG wire
- LED status indicators for each relay
- Removable Screw Terminal Option
For remote (RS-485) control of relays, you can also connect a modified ROB-24 to our RDG-24.
Each relay provides normally-closed and normally-open contacts (SPDT). If you need dual Form C contacts (DPDT), you may specify ROB-24-2 or ROB-24H-2.
I/O connectors for 50-pin connections (from ACCES' IOD-Series cards) and 37-pin connectors are provided. The latter provide means to use these relay cards with other manufacturer's cards if they use 37-pin connections. Interconnection to the digital output card can be via ACCES' model CAB50F-xx ribbon cable to ACCES' I/O cards or via CAB37-xx ribbon cable to other I/O cards. The relays are actuated by a 5-volt logic signal applied to appropriate pins of either the 50-pin or the 37-pin connector. If the digital-output card to be used has an unbuffered output (e.g., direct output from a type 8255 Programmable Peripheral Interface chip), then specify ROB-24-3 or ROB-24H-3. (Note: When Option 3 is selected, the relays will be actuated when power is applied to the card.) Thus, by use of ROB-24 or ROB-24H, you can realize simple, inexpensive control of heaters, fans, lights, etc.
The ROB-24 may be interfaced to any port of any ACCES IOD-Series card. Normally, digital inputs are pulled down to ground through 680 ohm resistors. However, if you prefer that they be pulled up to +5VDC, you can specify ROB-24-5 or ROB-24H-5. You can have multiple options in the card. For example, if you need AC-powered capability, DPDT relay output connections, and signals will come from an unbuffered digital output card, then the model number becomes: ROB-24-1-2-3
