FOX Input Output System

    fox30hires

    The SmartStack Fiber Optic Expansion (FOX) Base extends a high-speed PIC backplane enabling SmartStack I/O Modules to be mounted several meters from the PIC. The new FOX significantly increases the number of SmartStack I/O modules supported by one PIC Series controller, provides two mounting options and supports glass fiber optic cable.

    Our newly designed, plastic encased FOX base can be DIN rail mounted on its edge or flat. The new HE-FOX12 expansion base allows connectivity up to 500 meters utilizing glass fiber cables.



    The PIC 200 Series PIC directly supports DC digital inputs only. Two signal conditioning devices allow the connection of AC inputs as well. The HEXDIA converts 120/240 VAC digital inputs to 24 VDC (8 points). Similarly, the HE-XDIA-24 converts lower voltage 24 VAC input signals to 24 VDC (8 points).

    Three signal conditioning devices allow the standard 24 VDC, 0.5 A outputs of the PIC 200 Series PIC to drive specialized loads. The solid-state HEXDQA allows a 120/250 VAC load to be driven at up to 2 A (four points). The solid state HE-XDQD will drive a 24 VAC/24 VDC load at up to 3 A (four points). The mechanical HE-XDQR can drive up to a 10A load, supporting voltages of 120/250 VAC, and 24/30 VDC (four points).fox12hires

    Two signal conditioning devices provide the PIC 200 Series PIC with additional analog outputs, by converting 24 VDC PWM outputs already present on the controllers. The HE-XPC converts 24 VDC PWM outputs to 4 to 20 mA (2 channels), while the HE-XPV converts 24 VDC PWM outputs to 0 to 10V (two channels).
