The VBA-4E4E-G12-ZAJ is an AS-Interface input module with 8 inputs. The input 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 one-piece enclosure makes fast mounting possible completely without the use of tools as well as easy removal also without the use of tools. The stainless steel half shell and cast enclosure ensure maximum durability and a high degree of protection.
Connection to the AS-Interface line is achieved through insulation-piercing technology into the laid flat cable. Accordingly, the flat cable can be turned in two directions for the application.
Metal inserts ensure that all connections to the inputs are made with a high degree of stability. The connections to the sensorsaremade via an M12 x 1 round plug connector with the option with SPEEDCON technology.
The supply to the inputs and the connected sensors is fed from the internal supply of the module (from AS-Interface).
An LED, which is attached to the top of the module, is available to display the current switching state of every input.
A dual LED to indicate the particular AS-Interface voltage and the display, which has the module address 0, is available, and another dual LED indicates errors in the relevant ASInterface communication and peripheral errors. The input module has a dual addressing jack.
This module can be mounted in any position with three screws or snapped onto a standard DIN rail with the stainless steel bracket.
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.
