Analog Output, 13 Bit Current, 8 Channel
The IC200ALG326 is an 8-channel, 13-Bit Current, Analog Output module from the GE Fanuc Versamax Series. The single-ended channels of the IC200ALG326 are all in one group. The analog output module offers eight 4 mA to 20 mA analog current-sourcing outputs. When configured in the 0-20 mA mode, a current output signal value of 0mA links to a %AQ value of 0 counts and 20 mA corresponds to a %AQ rate of +32,000 counts. In 4 - 20 mA range mode, a value of 0 %AQ counts corresponds to an output current of 4 mA. A value of +32,000 %AQ counts corresponds to an output current of 20 mA. Installation of the IC200ALG326 in a PLC rack will result in conversion of negative value commands 0mA regardless of the range designated. If the IC200ALG326 is controlled by a Network Interface Unit, it changes any negative value commands to the low end of the range. The IC200ALG326 output range is default but can easily be configured in conjunction with a jumper to modify the output range. The use of a jumper also allows outputs to keep their last states or default if backplane power or communications are interrupted or the PLC is not operating. The outputs will continue in their last state or default, until different output data is received from the backplane or until field power is detached. If hot insertion of a module is done incorrectly, the operation of other modules on the same backplane may be disturbed.
