AS-Interface Module can deliver output to 2 devices.
February 18, 2013 -
Featuring 2 outputs, VBA-2A-G10-E2L-1M-2V1-W comes in standard, modified, and custom versions. Each output is powered by auxiliary black flat cable, enabling delivery of†up to 2 A per output and 4 A per module. When used with standard flat cable, module features IP68/IP69K rating. It can also be configured for lead breakage detection. Standard versions include 2 in (one M12 pigtail), 2 in (two M12 pigtails), 2 in (two M8 pigtails), 2 in/1 out (two M12 pigtails), and 2 out (two pigtails).

Get Two Outputs from a Single G10 AS-Interface Module from Pepperl+Fuchs
TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs introduces the VBA-2A-G10-E2L-1M-2V1-W AS-Interface Module. This single module provides two outputs, enabling it to provide one output to two devices. Each output is completely powered by the auxiliary black flat cable. This enables the G10 to deliver up to 2 A per output and up to 4 A per module.
“An output module can be used to turn on indicator lights, drive electric actuators, and control drives and motors, and the ultra-compact size of the G10 Series allows it to be completely sealed in a cable tray or a conveyor’s side rail,” says Tim Cicerchi, Product Manager. “When used with the standard flat cable, the G10 Series features an IP68/IP69K rating, making it perfectly suited for washdown applications. The module can also be configured for lead breakage detection. When this functionality is enabled, the PLC or control system is signaled when output wires break, enabling personnel to take quick corrective action to help maximize machine productivity.”
Many standard, modified, and custom G10 versions are available to support virtually any AS-Interface application need. Standard versions include 2 in (one M12 pigtail), 2 in (two M12 pigtails), 2 in (two M8 pigtails), 2 in/1 out (two M12 pigtails), and 2 out (two pigtails).
