Product Description:
The 40-549 is a single pole power matrix module, suitable for switching inductive/capacitive loads up to 5A with 110VDC/250VAC hot switching and 400VDC/250VAC cold switching. It is available in single 16×4, single 8×8, dual 8×4 or single 8×4 configurations. Connections are made via a front panel 25 way D-type male connector.Power Matrix Modules are intended for switching heavy AC or DC loads or for slaving large external relays, contactors and solenoids. The module is suitable for applications requiring switching of either mains voltage or DC current.The 40-549 is fitted with electro-mechanical power relays with gold clad silver alloy contacts.
