The latest addition to Sontay’s Smart Communication range is an I/O module with the ability to take inputs from standard field devices and transmit them over BACnet or Modbus protocols. The SC-IO-24 module is also a cost-effective solution for expanding I/O on an existing controller.

This I/O module allows the system to extend when it requires additional inputs and outputs on a physical controller. It has 10 inputs (two digital and eight universal), as well as two universal, two analogue and six digital outputs.

Installation is very straightforward. The device has 10 over-ride switches to manually control each output, DIN-rail mounting and 2-part raising cage terminals throughout.

A DIP switch enables BACnet or Modbus communication protocols to be selected. The MAC address is also selected via DIP switches.

Features include LED indication status, automatic baud-rate detection and device instance configuration for BACnet, or configurable parity and stop bits for Modbus.

This product delivers a simple and cost-effective way of integrating the 20 I/O points and extending a user’s BMS.
