With the compact VARAN VDM 086 I/O module, fast digital I/Os can be implemented in a decentralized configuration. The module has 8 digital outputs with read-back capability. It can therefore also be used as an input module. Per output (24V positive switching), inductive loads up to 2A can be controlled, which for example appear in hydraulic or pneumatic valves. The outputs are short-circuit proof and are therefore protected against polarity reversal. The status of the VDM 086 supply voltage can be determined through a simple status query.
