SKU: SNAP-ODC5RFM Category: Reed Relay Tags: DC, Digital, FM, Output, SNAP

The SNAP-ODC5R is a digital output module that uses reed relays and does not provide optical isolation. Current rating depends on the voltage the module is used with. This module is normally open. The module includes a connector clamp to prevent sparks and is Factory Mutual (FM) approved.

Typical applications for these modules include analog signal and communication line multiplexing. Because of their low 10 VA rating, these modules are not recommended for inductive or capacitive loads (even very small loads) because the inrush current is likely to exceed the 10 VA rating.

IMPORTANT: Applications using 120 VAC are typically NOT suited to this module. If you are considering using this module for any application other than low-voltage purely resistive loads, see the detailed notes and rating curve in the data sheet, and call Pre-sales Engineering for specific guidance.

For many applications a better choice is the SNAP-OMR6-C module, which can handle a full 6 A at 0-250 VAC or 0-30 VDC.

If you do not need FM approval, see the SNAP-ODC5R.

Part of the SNAP PAC System, the module mounts on a SNAP PAC rack with a SNAP PAC brain or rack-mounted controller. Analog, digital, and serial I/O modules can all be on the same rack. Such an I/O unit is also well suited for PC-based control or for use as intelligent remote I/O for an Allen-Bradley MicroLogix or other RSLogix-based PLC system, such as ControlLogix or CompactLogix.

For easier, faster wiring, see SNAP TEX cables and breakout boards.
