Unit 1 - 6115 4 St SE
Calgary AB  T2H 2H9

PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16

ID: 1012_1

Use it to check the state of switches, push buttons, relays and/or to switch relays, solenoids, motors and even high power LEDs.

Replaced by 1012_3

Replaced by the 1012 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16.

Digital Inputs

The Digital Inputs are activated by an external voltage source, triggering on a wide voltage range: 4 to 30VDC. They provide built-in filtering, to eliminate false triggering from electrical noise. They can be used to convey the state of on/off devices, such as push buttons, limit switches, relays.

Digital Outputs

The Digital Outputs can be used to directly control substantial devices, switching up to 30VDC at up to 2 Amps. The Output acts as a switch to ground, and is protected from transient voltages typical when switching inductive devices - relays, solenoids, motors. The Outputs can be used to directly control devices requiring substantial power such as incandescent lights, high power LEDs, relays, solenoids, motors.
