The DIO-10 Digital Input Output Module is part of Echelon’s LonPoint system. The DIO-10 Module is a LonMark device that provides two digital input and two relay ouputs. The digital inputs can moniter dry contacts or 31VDC voltage inputs. The two relay contacts are rated at 2A continuous and 6A surge at 30VAC or 42VDC. Separate Status LEDS are provided for each input and output. Separate Hand/Off/Auto switches are provided for each relay output. The module operates from 16 to 30 VAC or VDC, allowing it to be powered from the same sources as the sensors. Resident within the module is a powerful, configurable application program. The program includes Digital Input/Counter, Digital Output, Digital Encoder and Type Translator software function blocks (LonMark objects) that define how the module will function. Using Echelon’s LonMaker tool, the user links together the functional blocks of the DIO-10, other LonPoint modules, and other LonMark and LonWorks devices, to create open distributed control system. Network design and configuration is simplified by the Visio® interface of the LonMaker tool, which can both import and export AutoCAD® files and generate as-built documentation. The user configures the DIO-10 Module using the simple and intuitive interface provided by the LonPoint Plug-In. Moves, adds, and changes can be easily accommodated by downloading configuration changes into the LonPoint module’s flash memory either locally or via remote LonWorks or Internet network connection.
