Function: VBA-4E-G2-ZA

The VBA-4E-G2-ZA is an AS-Interface interface module with 4 Inputs. Mechanical contacts (e. g. push buttons) as well as 2-, 3- and 4-wire sensors can be connected to the inputs.

The IP67 flat module is ideal for applications in the field. An addressing jack is integrated in the module.

The sensors are connected by means of M12 x 1 screw connections. An LED is provided for each channel to indicate the current switching status. Similarly, an LED is available to monitor the AS-Interface communication and the indication that the module has the address 0.

The mounting plate U-G3FF is used, as standard, for connection to the AS-Interface. This lower section enables the flat cable to be contacted from both sides. If input and output modules are used in a mixed system, the flat cable for the internal power supply can be inserted in the lower section of this module. The module does not access this cable. The advantage is that both flat cables can be laid in parallel, without the danger of the module being destroyed by an incorrect connection.

An overloading of the internal input supply is signalled to the AS-Interface master via the "Peripheral fault" function. Communication via the AS-Interface remains unaffected.

Note:

The mounting base for the module is sold separately.
