The VBA-4E-G11-ZAJ-F is an AS-Interface switch-on module with 4 inputs. 2, 3 and 4 wire sensors can also be connected as mechanical contacts to the 4 sourcing electronic inputs.
The housing with a central screw enables fast mounting on the base plate.
The connection to the sensors is via an M12x1 plug-in connection on the top side of the device. The AS-Interface flat cable and external energy supply are connected via the insulation piercing technology on the underside of the module.
The inputs and the connected sensors are powered by the internal supply of the module (from the AS-Interface).
The current switching state of each input is indicated via an IN LED. The AS-i/FAULT LED indicates the status of the AS-Interface (normal operation, communication error, peripheral fault, address 0). The switch-on module is compatible with AS-Interface POWER24.
