DI-900 Modbus Distributed Data Acquisition


Multi-Channel Discrete I/O Modules
Active-Low Inputs Sinking Outputs (Low-Side Switching)

Data Sheet


Product Highlights

These modules provide twelve discrete input and/or output channels. Isolation separates the I/O, power, and network circuits. Network communication adheres to the industry-standard RS-485 Modbus RTU protocol. Both AC and DC power sources are supported with wide range, nonpolarized, diode-coupled terminals.

The open-drain outputs are intended for current-sinking or low-side switching applications. The buffered inputs are active-low. These models are the complement of the DI-904MB, DI-905MB, and DI-906MB units which have open-source, high-side output switches and active-high inputs. Socketed pull-up resistors are easily removed or exchanged to satisfy your application requirements. See the Circuit Connection Diagrams.

Combining flexible I/O types, wide I/O ranges, and a network interface in a single package, makes this instrument extremely powerful. Multi-channel design adds cost-efficiency and allows high-density mounting. Plus, safe, rugged construction makes these modules reliable for use in both control room and distributed field I/O applications. Custom module configurations are also possible (consult factory for details).

Everything you need to complete your network is available from DATAQ Instruments, Inc. - isolators, signal converters, signal boosters, power sources, and mounting hardware. Check out the Accessories.
