New Product Release: Four CONPROSYS™ nano Series I/O Modules – Analog Output, Counter Input, Digital Input/Output, and Relay Output
CONTEC has added the following configurable-type models, capable of handling environments between -20°C and 60°C, to its CONPROSYS™ nano series. The four new modules offer analog output, counter input, digital input/output, and relay output, and were released for sale on May 19, 2020.

These new expansion modules add both digital and analog I/O interfaces to the CPU coupler units of the CONPROSYS nano series, a remote I/O system designed for superior cost performance and ease of use. The main features of each product are outlined below.
This module is capable of voltage outputs of ±10 V, ±5 V, 0 to 10 V, and 0 to 5 V, and current outputs of 0 to 20 mA (software-configurable). This 16-bit resolution isolated inter-channel analog output module allows for individual switching and use of functions and ranges for each channel. The built-in power supply for current output eliminates the need for an external current-output power supply. The settling time* is 30 µsec/ch for voltage output (with no load) and 10 µsec/ch (with a 250 Ω load) for current output.
This high-speed pulse counter input module is capable of counting up or down at 32 bits and counting two-phase signals in one channel. The module can be connected to rotary encoders, linear scales, and other devices. The built-in photocoupler isolated input boasts a response frequency of 500 kHz.
This bidirectional digital I/O module is equipped with 8 photocoupler isolated inputs/outputs (with current sink-type output) with response speeds of 200 µsec. The shared digital I/O points mean each I/O pin can be used for either input or output without having to change wiring. This product supports external circuit power supplies of 5 to 24 VDC.
This output module features four independent common reed relay contact outputs, making it possible to support a different external power supply for each independent point (common). The maximum rated output for each point is 250 VAC / 30 VDC, 2 A. Because the bus and output interface is isolated with relays, the module offers excellent noise resistance.
