The simulation box is used to display the input and outputs signals of an MPS® station or PLC. Two modes of application are possible:
- Simulation of inputs for testing of a PLC program. Use I/O data cable (SysLink) (order no. 034031) for this purpose.
- Setting of outputs (with separate 24 V supply) in order to operate an MPS® station. The cable (order no. 167106, 2.5 m) required for this purpose is included in the scope of delivery.
The simulation box contains a SysLink socket.
- Operating voltage 24 VDC
- Signal voltage 24 VDC
- Syslink interface, IEEE488
- Switches: 9, non-detenting, detenting
- LEDs: 9
The simulation box is to be used exclusively in an educational laboratory environment. Use as a control element in an industrial environment is not intended, except briefly as a commissioning aid.
The grey (parallel) Syslink cable must not be used under any circumstances, as this could destroy the sensors.
