PERFORMANCE
Conversion accuracy (in percentage of input range)
Voltage input
:±0.05 %
Current input:±0.1 %
Conversion accuracy is inversely proportional to input span.
Conversion rate: 8 msec.
Input circuit time constant: Approx. 1 msec.
Data range: 0 – 10000 of the input range
(Scaling of converted data is configurable with the configurator software)
Data allocation: 2
Module addresses in use: 2
Power output (input connector): Rated current 0.5 A DC per channel (rated current 3 A for internal fuse (slow blow fuse i2t (A2sec.) max. 5.04); Total: 1 A DC
Temp. coefficient: ±0.015 %/°C (±0.008 %/°F)
Insulation resistance: ≥ 100 MΩ with 500 V DC
Dielectric strength: 1500 V AC @ 1 minute
(input or exc. supply to internal bus or internal power to ground)

CALCULATION EXAMPLES OF CONVERSION ACCURACY
Voltage input:
For input setting value 1 - 5 V DC
Conversion accuracy = Input range span (20 V) ÷ input setting value span (4 V) × 0.05 (%) = 0.25 (%)
■ Current input:
For input setting value 4 - 20 mA DC
Conversion accuracy = Input range span (40 mA) ÷ input setting value span (16 mA) × 0.1 (%) = 0.25 (%)
(Span is common for configuration mode and fixed input mode)
