Discrete Outputs

As with discrete inputs, the Vesta provides 32 channels of discrete outputs grouped into sets of four, connected using standard Cat5 cable. The Vesta discrete outputs provide 12 Vdc at up to 200ma, suitable for driving most 12vdc relays as well as small buzzers and LEDs.

The process for configuring discrete outputs is identical to discrete inputs.

In most cases, discrete outputs are simply connected via Cat5 cable to our relay control modules such as the RC-4DD. However, our discrete breakout box provides screw terminals for connecting other devices.
