EL2042 | 2-channel digital output terminal 24 V DC, 2 x 4 A/1 x 8 A

The EL2042 digital output terminal connects the binary 24 V control signals, electrically isolated, with the actuators. Two channels are available and indicate their signal state via LEDs. The EL2042 enables connection of loads with current consumption up to 8 A if the outputs are connected in parallel.
