The conical intersection works like a dip-switch. For example, if the
The DSCP6x series offers: [greater than][+ or -]0.1% accuracy, 14-bit resolution, 1500 VAC 3-way isolation (50 or 60 Hz, 1 min), output overcurrent protection, dip-switch configuration, 3 power supply options, cage clamp connectors and an expandable power-bus connector on DIN Rail Guide.
Readings are performed by a DIP-switch array for the coarse range setting, and two multiturn potentiometers are used for the final fine-tuning.
Housed in a durable aluminum casing, the 9XTend-PKG-R includes a dip-switch that makes it simple to select either an RS-232 or RS-485 connection.
A Resolution Selection dip-switch offers 16 resolutions from 1:1 up to 1:1000, with 0.0018-degree accuracy in 1:1000 mode.
A few tweaks of a knob and a couple of DIP-switch changes are all that's needed to work through the various configurations to see what performs best for a given setup.
Timing or counting display modes are DIP-switch selectable for time/count up or down from the setpoint.
The software automatically determines if the Modbus message is RS232/RS422/RS485, eliminating the problem of improperly setting dip-switches. Also, each module has one Ethernet port (independent of the CompactLogix Ethernet port) that executes Modbus TCP protocol.
Camera settings can be configured with DIP-switches on a rear panel of the analog camera.
Most slave modules support auto-baudrate or settings via DIP-switches. Using a standard terminal emulator, configuration can be done via the on-board R5232 interface.
The panel also has on-board programming via DIP-switches and can be set at 12 VDC as dictated by the application.
