Austdac Silbus Dual Port Channel Generator
The GSW1 dual port channel generator is a self-contained DIN rail mounted unit that measures 225 mm (W) x 75mm (H) x 110mm (D). It provides for 8, 16, 32, 64, or 128 channels at the two independent SILBUS network ports. Each channel can be used for digital or analogue signals and each port provides signalling and power to field devices or transmitters that can allow network lengths of up to 10,000m of unscreened twisted pair cable.
Each channel of the GSW1 can be used to transfer a variety of protocols from the field to the channel generator and vice versa. The available data transfer can be digital or analogue values.
The channel generator has four general purpose relay outputs that can be configured as a single output relay (a multi-term OR, AND, NAND, SAND, NOR or FLIP FLOP output relay). The operation of these relay outputs can be configured via the front panel keypad and display or via the console port.
The GSW1 has two general purpose digital or contact type inputs. These can be assigned to any SILBUS channel.
