New M-Module with Eight Relay Outputs

(PresseBox) (Nuremberg, )
  • 8 relay outputs
  • 1 A switching power per relay
  • One throw-over contact per relay
  • Output voltage range max. 48 V
  • No separate supply voltage
  • -40°C to +85°C (screened)
The M-Module has been developed according to the ANSI Mezzanine standard and extends a carrier board with eight relay outputs, which can be read out via a read-modify-write access.

Multiple relay outputs - flexible and cost-saving

The M-Module M43N supports eight relay outputs with free potential switching of the signals. The status of each relay can be read out via the read-modify-write access. The implemented relays guarantee maximum reliability and long service life.

All components of the M43N are firmly soldered to shock and vibration and are approved for a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

M-Modules – an ANSI-VITA standard since 1997 – are ideally suited for the connection of binary and analog process I/O, robotics, motion and measurement functions. As an extension to all current bus systems such as CompactPCI, ComapctPCI Serial, VMEbus or independent SBCs, mezzanine modules complement each application in a tailor-made and modular manner.
