Replacement possibilities for PCD2.W5x0 and PCD3.W5x0 modules

FAQ #101151

In 2009 the combined analogue input and output modules PCD2.W5x0 and PCD3.W5x0 will be discontinued. This FAQ suggests possible replacement modules depending on the measured/given signals and the required resolution.

 

 

Replacement modules for PCD2/3.W5x0
The table below contains possible replacement modules for the discontinued PCD2.W1xx modules (all PCD2.W1xx had 4 input channels and 12 bit resolution).

2 outputs 12 bit; 0..10V, ±10 V
 W5254 inputs 14 bit;
  - 0..10 V

 W6104 outputs 12 bit; ±10 V, 0..20mA 


Please note

  • The W5x0 modules can not be replaced by other analogue input/output modules without adapting the user program of the according PCD! The FBoxes (or the IL code) for reading the analogue inputs need to be replaced with the FBox/IL code for the replacement module!
  • There is no replacement for the ±20 mA input of the PCD2.W510 due to a very low demand. In case such a signal is to be measured we recommend applying an external converter of this input signal. 

Repair service for PCD2/3.W5x0
PCD2/3.W5x0 modules will be repaired by Saia Burgess Controls until end of 2014.
