The ECO-NAI module has 12 digital I/O and 6 programmable analog inputs as well as connection to CAN and RF networks. It communicates with the ECO-MCC module for configuration. Each ECO-NAI has a unique UID address on 4 bytes (eg 5B9F) inscribed on the case. The digital I/O are electrically isolated which requires placing a separate power supply.
The CAN network comprises a galvanic isolation and a jumper is configurable to place a resistor at each end of the bus. The jumper is located on the front face of the ECO-NAI module.
The analog inputs are configurable according to the type of sensor connected. You can connect resistance-type sensors, NI ... ... PT, CTN, LM35, ... Configuration is done by the Web interface integrated in the ECO-MCC module.
The module has the following characteristics:
- 6 analog inputs configurable depending on the connected sensor
- 12 programmable digital I/O (input/output) I/O overvoltage protection
- Communication interface to CAN - RF networks
- Galvanic isolation of the internally powered CAN network
- Radio Frequency communication with ECO-MCC Module
- Removable screwless connectors External
- 12 ... 24V power supply for I/O (independent of ECO-MCC)
- I/O LED status display
- DIN rail mounting
How to view the ECO-NAI module Input - Output status?
Each digital I/O is connected to a LED that displays its state. The LEDs are placed on the front of the ECO-NAI module. Lit LED = output ON.
How is ECO-NUM module powered?
A power connector is provided on the front panel. You can put a voltage of 12 ... 24V, the maximum consumption is 0.2 A. The I/O are galvanically isolated which requires a different power supply for the ECO-NAI power module. If there are several ECO-NAI, power can be shared.
How to connect the CAN network?
The CAN network is used to send commands and read the status of another ECO-xxx module. You can connect multiple ECO-xxx modules on the CAN network, for which it is necessary to place a resistor at each end of the network (jumper closed). Other intermediary ECO-xxx modules should not have placed resistance (jumper open). The jumper is located on the front face of the ECO-NAI module.
How does the RF network function?
Each ECO-NAI module includes a radio frequency network. The product is standardized and the radiated power does not exceed the standard. In the case of a cabinet configuration, it is necessary to place a remote antenna.
How to configure the ECO-NAI module?
It's very simple, you download the ECO-NETWORK setup software. ECO-NAI modules are identified by their unique UID address. The programming interface is user friendly and comes down to scheduling objects on the screen without specific programming knowledge.
