This module has 8 digital channels that can be configured as inputs or outputs. The inputs are designed for sink connections, the outputs for source connections. The outputs can handle up to 2 A. The summation current is 8 A.
The node number switch for setting the X2X Link address is a unique feature. When modular machine configurations change, it is necessary, for example, to define specific module groups at a fixed address that is independent of the preceding modules in the line. All subsequent standard modules refer to this offset and use it automatically for addressing purposes.
