JSB39616 USB 16 Channel Input Module

August 21, 2013 5:53 pm | J-Works, Inc. | Products

JSB39616 series of USB 16 channel switch input modules. Each channel input has an on-board pull-up resistor to sense switch (SW) closure or opening (SWNC). Typical applications include sensing dry contact closures from sources such as limit switches, proximity switches, selector switches, push buttons and photoelectric switches. In electrical noisy environments the DC versions provide isolated pull-up voltage and common so input channels are isolated from system (USB) side of module. Switch states can be monitored with a simple to use Windows interface using either a traditional DLL or managed class library.
