In this article is gathered all the data about maximum current output on the DO pin for different devices:


  • Krypton 1xCNT:

Output voltage +5V - current limit 100mA,

Output voltage +12V - current limit 90 mA.

  • Sirius:

The current limit is 50 mA.

  • Dewe-43:

Sensor power supply up to 10W total:

12 V, total limit 350 mA (Shared between: 8xAI, 8xCounters, 2xCAN)

5 V, total limit 700 mA (Shared between: 8xCounters, 2xCAN)

+/-5 V Exc., Ch. limit 70 mA


This means that because the channels are not isolated among themselves the pin5 (+12V analog) and pin6 (+12V counter) are connected together - they are ''sharing'' the sensor power supply. All the +12V pins are connected parallel and the current is distributed between them.



  • IOLITE PWR OUT:

IOLITE digital input and digital output modules both include power out option, where the unregulated power supply voltage is brought to a 2-pin PWR OUT connector.

The current limitation is 2A for the whole device.

  • DO on 4-pin sync connector:

The current limit is 25mA (50mA max 1 second).
