The VBA-4E4E-G12-ZAJ is an AS-Interface switch-on module with 8 inputs. The switch-on module is equipped with 2 separate AS-Interface chips and uses 2 A/B addresses. In the delivered state, both slave addresses use the address 0. The second slave is deactivated until the first slave is addressed. Duplicate addressing is avoided in this way. 2 and 3-wire sensors can also be connected as mechanical contacts to the PNP electronic inputs.
The housing with a central screw enables fast mounting on the base plate.
The connection to the sensors is via an M12x1 plug-in connection on the top side of the device. The AS-Interface flat cable is connected via the insulation piercing technology on the underside of the module.
The inputs and the connected sensors are powered by the internal supply of the module (from the AS-Interface).
The current switching state of each input is indicated via an IN LED. The AS-i/FAULT LEDs indicate the status of the AS-Interface (normal operation, communication error, peripheral fault, address 0). The switch-on module has a double addressing jack and is compatible with AS-Interface POWER24.
The unique housing design of the new KE5 switch cabinet module enables distinct visibility and simplifies mounting, wiring, and maintenance inside switch cabinets and junction boxes.
