The Protege DIN Rail 16 Input Expander provides the interface of up to 16 inputs for monitoring and automation in the Protege system. With 16 inputs that can be used for extended monitoring functionality, the Input Expander provides extensive hardware advancements that allow flexible input programming and configuration, and is designed for use with industry standard DIN Rail mounting.
Expanding the Protege System with local inputs from the Input Expander allows convenient cost effective expansion and the added benefit of:
A single RS-485 communication interface port used for all network communication functions and interconnection to other modules.
Device power is supplied from a 12VDC input. Ultra low current requirements ensure cost effective power distribution.
Utilizing the latest flash technology and high performance communication mediums, the firmware can be updated via the

* The Total Combined Current refers to the current that will be drawn from the external power supply to supply the Input Expander and any devices connected to the Expander's outputs. The Auxiliary outputs are directly connected via electronic fuses to the N+ N- input terminals, and the maximum current is governed by the trip level of these fuses.
