Function: VBA-2A-G4-U

The VBA-2A-G4-U analogue module has two voltage outputs 0 V ... 10 V. The asynchronous transformation of measured values and the data transfer is accomplished in accordance with AS-Interface profile 7.3. The measured-value transmitter can be supplied from the AS-Interface or from the external auxiliary power via the black flat cable, depending on the wiring of the plug-in jumpers. The resolution of the analogue values is 13 bit.

The IP65 rated G4 module is especially suitable for rough conditions. Connection to the outputs is established by means of cable glands and cage tension spring terminals thus making the installation especially user-friendly. For pre-addressing the module it can be plugged directly onto the adapter of the hand-held programming device VBP-HH1.

Both flat and round cables can be used for the connection of the AS-Interface transmission line and the external 24 V DC power supply. Use the U-G1FF base for the AS-Interface flat cable. The AS-Interface standardised EEMS interface, uses the cable piercing method to connect both the yellow and black flat cables.

Use the U-G1PP base for a round cable. The AS-Interface cable as well as the external power supply may be connected within the U-G1PP base.
