Details: VBA-2A-G4-I


The VBA-2A-G4-I analogue module has two analogue current outputs 0 mA ... 20 mA. Measured value conversion and data transmission are performed asynchronously in accordance with AS-Interface profile 7.3. Depending on how the plug-in jumpers are wired, the outputs can be powered from the AS-Interface or the external auxiliary power through the black flat wire. The resolution of analog values is 13 bits.

The G4 module in IP65 is particularly suitable for hard field use. The connection to the outputs is established by screwed connections and cage-clamp terminals. This makes the installation especially user friendly. The module can be plugged directly onto the adapter of the VBP-HH1 of the hand held programming device for pre-addressing.

The connection to the AS-Interface transmission line and the external 24 V DC power supply can be made with flat wire or round cable. If AS-Interface flat wire is used, the lower part of the U-G1FF should be used. The contact to the two lines is made with the EEMS interface standardised for AS-Interface, i. e. using the insulation penetration technique.

For a round cable, the U-G1PP base should be used. Here as well, it is possible to connect both the AS-Interface lead and the external power supply in the base.
