I have been configuring in the ctrlX Configurator a 16 digital inputs and 16 digital outputs application with ctrlX IO,
It seems that when I add more than one module it pops up automatically this boost module:
Is this normal? Do I have to add this module everytime I want to have more than one module?
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
we are working on a improvement for this topic.
For explanation: The buscoupler provides 8 A to the Up (Peripheral) voltage path. In the configurator we are calculating with a maximum load at each digital Output (0.5A / channel) --> In total 8A for all 16 channels. The DI module also consumes a 1 digit mA value from this path. To balance the power result, the configurator inserts the booster terminal.
We will update the database in short term and with future updates we will extend the possibilities with channel-specific parameterization of the connected load.
Actually the booster modul is not available(EW status), in this case I can't offer 32in and 32out config. When will this module available for selling?
Boost module will be available in october. Please check if the maximum load at the same time for all outputs is really by 8A. If this is not the case, you will not need the boos module.
