Galvanically Isolated Digital Output Module

The IO205 I/O module is a digital output module with Simulink® driver blocks.

The 32 digital outputs are available as high-side switches with a 6 V to 48 V output range. All channels are galvanically isolated by optocouplers.

All outputs are protected against short-circuit and thermal overload and can output up to 0.5 A per channel.

This I/O module is ideal for closed-loop controls and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations using MATLAB®and Simulink®.

MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) - MTBF values shown are based on calculation according to MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2; Environment: GB 20°C. The MTBF calculation is based on component FIT rates provided by the component suppliers. If FIT rates are not available, MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2 formulas are used for the FIT rate calculation.
