DIN PCB mounted Interfaces
Divide By N interface:
The picture to the left shows a Divide By N signal interface. The interface, powered from 24 volts DC, isolates the incoming signal from a sensor and accurately divides the pulse number any number between 1 to 10, adjustable by on-board rotary switch or external selector.
For example, if five incoming signals need to be recognised by a totalizer, PLC or data collector as one signal, then set the rotary switch to 5 and for each batch of five signals from the sensor, one signal will be sent out to the data gathering device.
If you are using totalizer/counters or PLCs to collect your signal data from signals generated by other power sources then you will need opto-isolation.
Now there is no need to buy separate Opto-isolators, we have a range of DIN PCB’s that save you money and space by incorporating 4, 8 and 16 channels on one unit.
Delay by N interface:
This unit is designed to accept a signal from one source that needs to be delayed by a set number of counts from another signal source.
It has a surprising number of applications but the most obvious one is where a sensor detects an object on a production line that needs to be acted upon by a machine at a distance further down the line..
General Purpose Interface unit GPIF1.
So many functions in one unit!
