Function: VBA-4E2A-KE1-Z/E2

The VBA-4E2A-KE1-Z/E2 AS-interface coupling module is a cabinet module with 4 inputs and 2 electronic outputs. The housing, only 22.5 mm in width and 48.5 mm in height, takes up little place in the switch cabinet. The module is mounted by snapping onto the 35 mm DIN rail in accordance with EN 50022.

Plug-in terminals are used for connection. 4-way terminal blocks (black) are used for the inputs. The connection of the outputs and the external auxiliary supply and AS-Interface is made through the 2-way terminal blocks (outputs black, auxiliary voltage gray and AS-Interface yellow). This makes it possible to separate individual actuators or to supply power during commissioning or servicing.

The supply of the inputs and the connected sensors occurs internally via the module (from AS-Interface). An LED on the front control plate is used to display the current switching state for each input and output.

Note:

The device is equipped with a watchdog, which switches the outputs to their de-energized state, when on the AS-interface cable is no communication for more than 40 ms.

An overload of the outputs is reported by the 'periphery error' to the AS-Interface master. Communication over the AS-Interface remains in effect.
