ConfigEdit Confusion

For the unit types listed, DNET_SLAVE says that it has 128 DI/O and only 3 AI/O. However, when you enter the user signals or set up the parameters for a DNET_SLAVE unit, you are given a MAX DI/O of 512 and MAX AI/O of 30.  This is a bit confusing and I would like to know which one is correct. I am using version 4.0.


  • Hello grede 1,

    From the I/O Plus Manual:

    4.3 S4Cplus DeviceNet internal slave


    The S4Cplus DeviceNet channels have built-in digital slave modules with up to 128 digital inputs and 128 digital outputs as well as 3 analog inputs and 3 analog outputs. This can be used to connect the S4Cplus controller to, for example, a PLC. See User's Guide Baseware OS, chapter I/O data specification for system data. It can also be usedfor connection of the slave channel of one or several robots to the master channel of one controlling robot. Maximum two slaves could be configured on one DeviceNet channel if more signals are required.
