SLC™ 500 4-Channel Analog I/O Modules
Determining Your Power Requirements for a Modular Controller
Analog modules require both 5V dc and 24V dc power from the backplane of the
SLC 500 system. However, the NO4I and NO4V analog modules can use an external
24V dc power supply. This eliminates the 24V dc backplane power requirements,
providing configuration flexibility if SLC power supply loading is critical. These two
modules provide user-supplied external 24V dc power supply connections.
The following table shows the power requirements for each analog module using
backplane power. Use this table to calculate the total load on the modular system
power supply. For more information refer to the SLC 500 Modular Hardware Style
User Manual, publication 1747-UM011.
IMPORTANT
The analog modules do not supply loop power for the input
device. You must supply the appropriate loop power for
loop-powered input devices.

The 24V dc user power connection on a fixed SLC 500 can power an NO4I or NO4V analog module. However, the regulation
of the 24V dc user connection on a modular SLC 500 power supply, catalog number 1746-P1, -P2, and -P4 is outside of the
requirements of the NO4I and NO4V analog modules and cannot be used.
(2)
Omit these values from your SLC power supply loading calculations if you decide to use an external power supply.
Determining Your Power Requirements for a Fixed Controller
IMPORTANT
The 2-slot, SLC 500 fixed I/O expansion chassis (1746-A2) will
support only specific combinations of modules. If you wish to
use an I/O module in a 2-slot expansion chassis with another
SLC I/O or communication module, refer to the SLC 500

Configuring Your Module
The NI4, NIO4I, NIO4V, FIO4I, and FIO4V analog modules have user-selectable
DIP switch settings, which allow you to configure the input channels as either
current or voltage inputs. The switches are located on the analog module board.
The following illustration shows the ON and OFF switch settings. Switch orientation
is also provided on the nameplate of the module.
ON - Configures channel for current input
OFF - Configures channel for voltage input
ATTENTION
Care should be taken to avoid connecting a voltage source
without a current transmitter, etc. to a channel configured for
current input. Improper module operation or damage to the
module can occur.
Switch Settings for the 1746-NI4
The NI4 has 4 individual DIP switches that control the input mode of channels 0
through 3. A switch in the ON position configures the channel for current input. A
switch in the OFF position configures the channel for voltage input.

Choosing a Slot in the Chassis
Two factors determine where the analog module should be located in the chassis:
ambient temperature and electrical noise. Consider the following conditions when
selecting a slot for an analog module. Position the module:
• in a slot away from an ac or high voltage dc modules
• in the chassis closest to the bottom of the enclosure where the SLC 500
system is installed
• away from the chassis power supply if installed in a modular system

Installing Your Module
All modules are mounted in a single slot. Remember that in a modular system the
processor always occupies the first slot of the first chassis.
ATTENTION
Never install, remove, or wire modules with power applied to
the chassis. Also, do not expose analog modules to surfaces or
other areas that may typically hold an electrostatic charge.
Electrostatic charges can destroy the analog circuitry.
IMPORTANT
The potentiometer sets the voltage during factory calibration to
2.5 volts. It is set and sealed at the factory and does not
require any adjustments.
1. Verify that all switches are set correctly for the application.
ATTENTION
Care should be taken to avoid connecting a voltage source
without a current transmitter, etc. to a channel configured for
current input. Improper module operation or damage to the
module can occur.
2. Align the circuit board of the analog module with the card guide of the
chassis as shown on page 12.
3. Slide the module in until both top and bottom retaining clips are secured.
4. To remove the module, depress the retaining clips at the top and bottom of
the module and slide the module out.

System Wiring Guidelines
Use the following guidelines in planning the system wiring for the analog modules:
• all analog common terminals (ANL COM) are electrically connected inside
the module. ANL COM is not connected to earth ground inside the module.
• voltages on IN+ and IN- terminals must remain within ± 20 Volts with
respect to ANL COM to ensure proper input channel operation. This is true
for current and voltage input channel operation.
• voltage outputs (OUT 0 and OUT 1) of the NIO4V and NO4V are referenced
to ANL COM. Load resistance (R1) for a voltage output channel must be
greater than or equal to 1K ohms.
• current output channels (OUT 0 and OUT 1) of the NIO4I and NO4I source
current that returns to ANL COM. Load resistance (R1) for a current output
channel must remain between 0 and 500 ohms.
After the analog input module is properly installed in the chassis, follow the wiring
procedure below using Belden 8761 cable.
ATTENTION
Care should be taken to avoid connecting a voltage source
without a current transmitter, etc. to a channel configured for
current input. Improper module operation or damage to the
module can occur.
Grounding Your Cable
Belden cable #8761 has two signal wires (black and clear), one drain wire and a foil
shield. Refer to illustration on page 14 for Belden cable #8761. The drain wire and
foil shield must be grounded at one end of the cable. Do not earth ground the drain
wire and foil shield at both ends of the cable.
Input Channel - Use a chassis mounting tab as a ground for the drain wire and foil
shield.
Output Channel - Ground the drain wire and foil shield at the analog load.
IMPORTANT
If you cannot ground the output channel at the load, ground
the drain wire and foil shield at the chassis mounting tab. Do
not connect the foil shield or drain wire to the analog terminal
block. They must be connected to an earth ground, which is
not provided at the analog module.

Determining the Cable Length
Determine the length of cable you will need to connect a channel to its input or
output device. Remember to leave additional length to route the drain wire and foil
shield for earth grounding.
Wiring the Analog Module
After the analog module is properly installed in the chassis, use the following
wiring procedure. Belden cable #8761 is recommended when wiring analog
modules. This section assumes that you have properly installed the analog module.
ATTENTION
Before wiring any analog module, disconnect power from the
SLC 500 system and from any other source to the analog
module.
To wire your analog module, follow these steps and refer to the illustrations on
page 15.
1. Designate the end of the cable where the drain wire and foil shield is earth
grounded as END 1. Designate the other end as END 2.
2. At each end of the cable, strip some casing to expose the individual wires.
3. Trim the signal wires to 50 mm (2 inch) lengths. Strip 5 mm (about 3/16
inch) of insulation away to expose the end of the wire.

4. At END 1, twist the drain wire and foil shield together, bend them away from
the cable, and apply shrink wrap.
5. At END 2, cut the drain wire and foil shield back to the cable and apply
shrink wrap.
6. Connect the signal wires (black and clear) to the terminal block and the
input and output devices. The recommended maximum torque is 0.57 Nm (5
lb-in) for all terminals.
• Input channels - connect END 1 at module. Use a chassis mounting tab
as a ground for the drain wire and foil shield.
• Output channel- connect END 2 at the module. Ground the drain wire
and foil shield at the analog load.
7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for each channel on the analog module. Jumper
the unused plus (+), minus (-) and common terminals of each input channel
individually. Unused output and common terminals should be left
unconnected.
The following illustrations depict the proper cable preparation for END 1 and END

Labeling and Installing the Terminal Block
The terminal block has a write-on label. Labeling the terminal block will help
ensure that it is installed on the correct module.
When installing the analog module in a chassis, it is not necessary to remove the
terminal block from the module. However, if the terminal block is removed, use the
write–on label located on the side of the terminal block to identify the module
location and type.

TIP
The black dot on the terminal block label indicates the
position of terminal 0.
Once you have wired your analog module and properly labeled the terminal block,
install the terminal block on the analog module. To install the terminal block:
1. Align the terminal block with the receptacle.
2. Insert the terminal block and press firmly at the top and bottom until it is
properly secured.
To remove the terminal block, grasp it on the top and bottom and pull outward and
down.

Minimizing Electrical Noise on Analog Modules
Inputs on analog modules employ digital high frequency filters that significantly
reduce the effects of electrical noise on input signals. However, because of the
variety of applications and environments where analog modules are installed and
operating, it is impossible to ensure that all environmental noise will be removed
by the input filters.
Although it is not the purpose of this installation instruction to address SLC 500
system procedures, several specific steps can be taken to help reduce the effects of
environmental noise on analog signals:
• Install the SLC 500 system in a properly rated (i.e., NEMA) enclosure. Make
sure that the SLC 500 system is properly grounded.
• Use Belden cable #8761 for wiring the analog modules making sure that the
drain wire and foil shield are properly earth grounded.
• Route the Belden cable separate from any other wiring. Additional noise
immunity can be obtained by routing the cables in grounded conduit.
• Group analog and low voltage dc modules away from ac I/O or high voltage
dc modules.
A system may malfunction due to a change in the operating environment after a
period of time. Periodically check system operation, particularly when new
machinery or other noise sources are installed near the SLC 500 system. For further
details on system installation and start-up refer to:
• SLC 500 Modular Hardware Style User Manual, publication 1747-UM011
• SLC 500 Fixed Hardware Style User Manual, publication 1747-6.21
