Function: VBA-4E4A-G12-ZAJ/EA2L

The VBA-4E4A-G12-ZA/EA2L is an AS-Interface trigger module with 4 inputs and 4 outputs. 2- and 3-wire sensors as well as mechanical contacts can be connected to the plus switching electronic inputs. The outputs are electronic outputs which can be energized with max. 24 V DC and 2 A per output.

The solid housing permits fast mounting without tools as well as easy removal without tools. The stainless steel shell and the cast housing ensure durability and a high protection category.

The connection to the AS-Interface calbe and to the external power supply is achieved via penetration technology in the integrated flat cable. The insert for the flat cables can be turned in two orientations.

All connections to inputs and outputs are implemented via metal inserts for high stability. The connection to the sensors/actuators is achieved via a M12 x 1 circular connector with SPEEDCON quick locking option.

The inputs and the connected sensors are supplied from the internal power supply of the module (from AS-Interface), the outputs and the connected actuators via an external power source (AUX).

To indicate the current switching state there is an LED for each channel fitted to the top of the module. The outputs are protected against overload and short circuit, an output overload is indicated via an LED per channel.

To indicate the current switching state there is an LED for each channel fitted to the top of the module. The outputs are protected against overload and short circuit, an output overload is indicated via an LED per channel.

This module can be mounted in any position using three screws or can be snapped onto the DIN rail using the stainless steel holder.

An output overload is reported to the AS-Interface master via the function "periphery fault". The communcation with the AS-Interface remains intact.
