The D8720 15-channel digital output module is part of the DGH’s D8000 data acquisition module family. This output module contains 15 individial open-collector transistor outputs to 30Vdc, 100mA maximum, and is able to control devices requiring an ON/OFF signal such as lamps, annunciators etc. The D8720 input module can be directly connected to relays and annunciators. A range of additional programmable features is available, such as baud rate, parity type, power-on bit state or a communications watchdog times which can be used to move the analog output signal to a known “safe” condition in an event of communication failure. For extra security, it utilises a non-volatile EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory) to store all user-selectable settings such as the range, meaning the values are maintained in the event of power loss. The D8720 module is compatible with any commercial software supporting Modbus RTU protocol and is DIN-rail mountable (MK-1 mounting kit required). Combined with other D8000 modules, it provides the complete, customised data acquisition system for given application.
