2.8.1 Plug Connectors
The connection of the 6ES5 242 counter module to the user
inputs and outputs is accomplished via a %pin plug connector.
There are five such connectors mounted on the front plate
of the module, one for each of the five counters. (See
Figures 2-1 and 2-2)

2.8.2 Counter and Gate Inputs
The counter and gate inputs which are connected through
the front connectors of the module are galvanically isolated
by means of optocouplers. The input circuitry is identical for
both types of inputs and can be configured for TTL levels or
24 vdc levels.
The counter inputs are pulse edge sensitive. The gate inputs
can be programmed in the counter mode (CM) register to be
either pulse edge sensitive or level sensitive.
Figure 2-3 illustrates the circuitry of the counter input gates.
The circuit is supplied with an input resistor (Rx) to allow
different input voltage levels to be selected. A capacitor
(W)
can be added to the output to suppress noise spikes. Note
that the counting frequency is affected when capacitors are
added.
