Comnet FDC8 Series 8 Channel Contact Closure Transmitter and
8-Channel Contact Closure Transmitter and Receiver
FDC8 SERIES
INCLUDED
HARDENED
8
The ComNet™ FDC8 Series contact closure transmitter and receiver provides
transmission of up to eight independent contact closures over one RS232 link or
optical fiber. Microprocessor-based logic sends the contact information in packets that
are ordered and encoded, ensuring extremely robust transmission. Packets that are
garbled, packets out of sequence, and transmission bit errors will not cause random
changes of state on the contact relays. Also, the mechanical latching relays maintain
their state even when the unit loses power. Each module incorporates power and
individual status indicating LEDs for monitoring confirmation of contact closure of each
of the eight channels. Packaged in the exclusive ComNet ComFit housing, these units
may be either wall or rack-mounted, or may be DIN-rail mounted by the addition of
ComNet model DINBKT1 or DINBKT4 adaptor plate.
FEATURES
› Transmits up to eight contact closures over one RS232 link, or
one optical fiber
› Hot-swappable rack modules
› Eight channel Point-to-Point transmission architecture
› Interchangeable between stand-alone or rack mount use –
ComFit
› Indicating LEDs for monitoring power and contact channels
› Lifetime Warranty
› Eight SPST latching relays (with individual indicators)
› Tested and certified by an independent laboratory for full
compliance with the environmental requirements (ambient
operating temperature, mechanical shock, vibration, humidity
with condensation, high-line/low-line voltage conditions and
transient voltage protection) of NEMA TS -1/TS -2 and the
Caltrans Specification for Traffic Signal Control Equipment
› Microprocessor-based logic and latching relays in receiver
unit eliminate random contact closure status in the event of
loss of link or loss of prime operating power.
