ANT Rack-Mount

To expand the number of controlled parameters, RDF has a series of plug-in modules housed in dedicated rack units. Inputs and Outputs
number can be expanded to manage an incredible amount of data:

  • Up to 256 analog inputs (8, 10, 12 or 16 bit resolution)
  • Up to 248 digital inputs (contact inputs on-off)
  • Up to 256 relays (digital output)
  • Up to 32 x 10bit resolution analog outputs.

They are configurable, both locally and remotely, and are programmable to generate alarms or run simple routines, called macros.
Furthermore, the I/O state can be read, both on site and remotely, at any time. There are two versions of dedicated rack mounts to host expansion modules:

  • PW-RACK, featuring an independent embedded power supply
  • BS-RACK, that uses power distributed via RS485

Power supply: BS-RACK: 11÷14 VDC, from the RDF through “RS485” connector
PW-RACK: 110/230VAC ± 10% 
Dimensions: 160 x 100 x 18 mm (formato EUROCARD) per rack 19”
Interface: RS485 BUS
