Function: VBA-4E-G11-I-F

The VBA-4E-G11-I-F analog module has four analog current inputs with a range of 0 mA ... 20 mA or 4 mA ... 20 mA.

The power supply to the measurement value generators takes place depending on the position of the internal slide switch, via AS-Interface or through auxiliary voltage. The choice of input supply is displayed via the INT/EXT LED.

Measured value conversion and data transfer is provided asynchronously according to the AS-Interface profile 7.3. The resolution of the analog values is 1 μA with a value range of 0 to 20000 or 4000 to 20000. Network interference can be eliminated with a configurable filter (50 Hz/60 Hz) in the A/D converter.


An overload of the internal input supply is also reported to the AS-Interface master via the 'peripheral fault' function. Communication via the AS-Interface continues.
