Dataforth’s MAQ20-DODC20SK module has been named the Honorable Mention in the Hardware - Data Acquisition category in Control Engineering’s 2018 Engineers’ Choice Awards program. Introduced in February 2017, the high density DODC20SK module has 20 isolated discrete output channels that can switch up to 60VDC signals and sink up to 3A of current.
“We are extremely proud and honored to be the Engineers’ Choice Award’s Honorable Mention,” says Georg Haubner, Manager of Sales & Marketing. “The MAQ20-DODC20SK module’s outstanding features significantly expand the MAQ20 system’s overall capability and flexibility; now we also have peer recognition of this module’s excellence.”
The module’s default output states are user configurable and channels can be switched individually or in block format. Logic polarity can be user defined as standard or inverted. Field output connections are made through high density spring cage terminal blocks and have fast switching times.
Other MAQ20-DODC20SK features include 1500Vrms output-to-bus isolation and individual channel protection up to 60VDC continuous overload, in case of inadvertent wiring errors. 150Vrms channel-to-channel isolation gives the module the ability to control equipment with or without common signal grounds or different pieces of equipment with multiple reference potentials.
Like all MAQ20 modules, the MAQ20-DODC20SK is designed for installation in Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations and has a high level of immunity to the environmental noise commonly present in heavy industrial environments.
