Supervised Input Module
The SIEMENS Model SIM-16 Supervised Input Module
is a remotely located, general purpose input module. It
provides sixteen input circuits for remote system
monitoring. Each input can be individually programmed
as supervised (dry contacts only) or unsupervised
(general-purpose input). The SIM-16 has two Form C
relays. The relays and the inputs are programmable using
the Zeus Programming Tool.
The SIM-16 is mounted in an enclosure that is remotely
located from the Main Panel. Communication between
the SIM-16 and the NIC-C (Network Interface Card) is
through the Control Area Network (CAN) bus. Up to 99
SIM-16s can be used with a single NIC-C.
Each SIM-16 has two 10-position rotary switches that are
used to set the board address on the CAN which is a
sub-address of the NIC-C.
Every time a change of state of the input is detected, a
unique CAN message is sent to the NIC-C. A CAN
message from the NIC-C directed to the SIM-16 controls
the Form C relays.
Rotary Address Switches - Set the board address for
each SIM-16 using both of the ten-position rotary
switches located on the board (See Figure 1). Each of
these addresses must be a sub-address of the NIC-C
and must be the same as the addresses assigned in the
Zeus Programming Tool.
A SIM-16 may be installed in a REMBOX. When using REMBOX 2 or 4, mount the
SIM-16 in one module space on a REMBOX2-MP , P/N 500-634211 or REMBOX4-MP ,
P/N 500-634212 using the four screws provided. (Refer to REMBOX2-MP/REMBOX4-
MP Installation Instructions, P/N 315-034211.) Up to 4 SIM-16s will fit in a REMBOX2;
up to 8 SIM-16s will fit in a REMBOX4.
