Neuron extension xS40
Neuron x40 is an extension unit for Neuron controller units allowing you to further extend your automatization network with additional I/O’s. It has its own processor and may function independently on the controller unit. Ideal for both monitoring and control of external devices (boilers, three-way valves, lights, door locks and other switched devices).
- 8× Digital input 4-24 V DC
- 14 × Relay output max. 5 A at 250 V AC / 30 V DC
- Custom LED indicators
- RS485 (for Modbus communication)
- Recommended power supply 24 V DC, 0.63 A
Additional unique functions
Along with basic I/O features this product offer additional unique features, either improving its performance or making it ready for cases of emergency.
Direct switch allows you to set appropriate device reaction based on input signal without a need of master control unit (Raspberry Pi computer build inside Neuron controller). This function is great for real time applications. It also comes in handy in case of malfunction of master control unit.
It is possible to store default settings inside the module memory and when the device reboots, it configures itself according to stored default settings.
This function periodically controls communication with master control unit (Raspberry Pi computer). If for a period predetermined by user there is no communication with master unit. It will load and set the stored default settings. Your applications will function even in emergency cases.
Device addressing and DIP switch settings
Addressing of extensions is done either via control software running on remote master control unit or is set manually via integrated DIP switch. The DIP switch allows you to set 4 bits of address and is evaluated in preference to software settings. If the address on DIP switch is set to “0000”, all DIP switch settings is ignored and the software settings takes over.
For more information about addressing and other product features please review the product manual.
