About This Manual
The Purpose of
this Manual
This manual is written for the user of
non-traditional CPU-slot controllers or I/O
controllers who are also using our DL405
I/O products. This manual shows you how
to install and wire the equipment. It
provides specifications for input and
output modules. It also helps you
understand how to interface these
products to other devices in a control
system.
Supplemental
Manuals
In addition to this manual, you will want to have the appropriate manual for your
CPU-slot controller and for the PC-based control software you will be using.

DL405 System Components
Bases
Three base sizes are available in the system: 4 slot, 6 slot and 8 slot.
I/O Configuration
The CPU slot controllers can support up to 512 I/O points in an eight slot base with up
to three expansion bases.
I/O Modules
The DL405 family provides some of the most powerful modules in the industry.
There is a complete range of discrete modules which support 24 VDC, 125 VDC,
110/220 VAC and up to 10A relay outputs. Analog modules provide 12 and 16 -bit
resolution and several selections of input and output signal ranges (including
bipolar).
At this time, only the D4–HSC High Speed Counter Specialty Module is supported;
no other intelligent modules are supported.
The controllers available at the time this manual was printed are:
