30- Universal Digital Field Device Simulator Wired to I/O Module Terminal Blocks


Please allow 10 to 15 business days for shipment of this product.

These are specifically built to allow unplugging the RTBs from you existing CompactLogix controllers and plugging these in to use the Digital Field Device Simulators with existing learning/lab stations such as Festo, Amitrol etc...Eliminating the need to modify your training stations that are already permanently connected the other input and output devices.

The images are for 1769 I/O RTBs with 24" extensions. 

These are also available for any length, any controller and any manufacturer but only by quote...contact us for quote...do not order unless you want exactly what is in the images...Discounts available for large quantities.

A universal I/O simulator with six multipurpose input simulators and six highly visible output simulators:

This field device simulator can be integrated with any controller, any size and any brand.

1. Six multipurpose input field device simulators:

Multi-state simulator; using a selector switch or a pushbutton alone can be awkward to operate when exercising your logic in the controller.

The electrical interface (field wiring) to the six input field device simulation is one common conductor to all six pairs of switches and one dedicated conductor per pair for landing on the I/O modules terminal block. They are not polarity sensitive, they are all dry contacts.

Maintained ON or Maintained Off - There are instances that you would like to change the state of a simulated input field device and leave it in that state indefinitely.

Normally Open or Normally Closed - There are other situations where a single hand motion to change the state momentarily reduces distraction from concentrating on the code and not the simulation of field devices. This is where a pushbutton is the best solution.

In most cases... A normally open pushbutton will suffice for the quick momentary change of state and for that reason all six of our input field device simulators have an adjacent pushbutton that functions as normally open when the toggle switch is in the maintained off position.

In00 - In05 - four state simulation:

Maintained Off or Normally Open

Maintained On or Normally Closed


2. Six highly visible illuminated indicators as output field device simulators:

The electrical interface (field wiring) to the six-output field device simulation is one common conductor to all six 24vdc LED illuminated pushbuttons connected to the negative (ovdc - common) terminal of the indicators and one dedicated conductor per indicator for landing on the I/O modules terminal block. They are polarity sensitive, negative common and positive (24vdc) from each output terminal to each indicator. Integration with relay output modules is the simplest. Make sure that your output module is compatible with this circuit type.

Larger and multicolor indicators allow quicker determination of the state of the outputs controlled by your controller.

3. The enclosure has dual 24vdc power connectors connected in parallel to allow daisy chaining to additional field device simulations.

We include a 24vdc power adapter with this field device simulator. The power adapter has sufficient capacity to power at least two of our field device simulators.

We have not posted a photo of the power adapter because the physical form may vary, but not the capacity.

4. The enclosure is professionally machined and digitally printed.

5. These are shown with a typical length of cable between the simulator and the I/O modules. The price shown is typical and only for the configuration shown.

6. Terminal blocks allow the maximum flexibility with your training or lab equipment.

7. Includes 24vdc power adapter.
