Sensor Port I/O

Each Module is equipped with two 4-pin female M8 style Sensor I/O ports primarily used to connect a photo-electric sensor to the module. Each of these ports has one pin dedicated as an input for the sensor (pin 4) and one Aux I/O pin (pin 2) that is configurable to be either an input or an output.

Sensor Input Signal (M8 Pin 4)

The sensor input (pin 4) is auto-sensing for PNP or NPN circuit type such that both sourcing and sinking current will activate the input based upon the following conditions:

Minimum ON Current 1.5 mA
Maximum OFF Current 0.4 mA

Aux I/O Signal (Pin 2) when configured as as INPUT

When configured as an INPUT, the Aux I/O (pin 2) is auto-sensing for PNP or NPN circuit type such that both sourcing and sinking current will activate the input based upon the following conditions:

Minimum ON Current 1.5 mA
Maximum OFF Current 0.4 mA

Aux I/O Signal (Pin 2) when configured as an OUTPUT

When configured as an OUTPUT, the Aux I/O (Pin 2) provides an NPN only circuit as illustrated:

Sensor Port 24VDC (Pin 1) and GND (Pin 3)

Pin 1 of each Sensor Port provides 24V for powering up a sensor device and/or for supplying the load for the Aux I/O (Pin 2) when configured as an output. The available current for the two control ports on the module is limited internally by a solid-state fuse. The maximum combined current consumption for the two sensor ports is 100 mA.

Motor Port

Supported motor types Senergy Ai
PWM frequency* 25 kHz +/- 0.1%
Maximum starting current 8A
Maximum rated current 3A
Motor Protection** Coil-to-coil short, coil-to-Vcc short, overheating, over-voltage, under-voltage, stall sensing and protection
  • The PWM frequency is firmware version dependent

Motor Ports in Digital Output Mode

Either the Left or Right (or both) Motor Ports can be configured to operate their respective motor coil output transistors as 24V DC digital output signals. These digital output signals are sinking type only and will accommodate up to 1A on a given output pin, but restricted to a total of 1.5A for both pins on a given port.

For each of the Motor Ports, only 2 out of the 3 total motor coil output pins are available as digital outputs for a total of 4 Motor Port digital outputs available per module. Please note that these 2 available motor coil pins are different between the Left and Right Motor Ports as illustrated:
