I/O Systems - SD Series I/OAO05

The AO05 Analog Output module processes up to 8 high level, individual CH-2-CH isolated, analog output field signals. Each channel is independently configurable for either 4 to 20 mA or 1 to +5 VDC ranges. FC 221 (I/O Device Definition) sets AO module operating parameters and each output channel is configured using FC 223 (Analog Output CH) to set indivdual output channel parameters such as engineering units, High/Low alarm limits, default value in event of loss of communication with controller, etc.

D/A resolution of each channel is 12 bits. The AO05 module has a dedicated D/A converter and HART modem for each output channel.

In current mode, the AO05 module supports HART v5.4 instruments and provides short circuit protection by limiting current to a maximum of 26 mA. The AO05 module will also detect an open circuit in less than 5 seconds.
