The IP2401-Bxxx digital I/O module has sixteen channels that can be used as eight inputs and eight outputs. . The signals are connected through M8 screw type connectors, both of which have four pins (with separate input and output pins). Adapter cables are available for use in input-only or output-only cases, as well as connectors for field assemby. It is also possible to use the power supply cable directly as the sensor cable. The outputs handle load currents of up to 0.5 A, are short-circuit proof and protected against inverse polarity. The state of each signal is indicated by means of light emitting diodes.
