(2) Replace 32-point contact output type module using "relay terminal module"
Solution and Benefit
• Using the relay terminal modules, a large type A (Large Type) Series 32-point contact output
module can be replaced while maintaining 8 points/common.
• A wide variety of compatible wire sizes are available using the relay terminal module.
A (Large Type) Series 32-point contact output module AY13: Max. 2 mm
Relay terminal module: Max. 1.25 mm
Q Series 16-point contact output module QY10: Max. 0.75 mm
• Replacement is possible without the need of additional modules because a module mounted on
the base unit becomes compatible with 32-point connector type modules through the use of the
"connector/terminal block converter module".
The following is an example of replacing contact output modules (AY13) with transistor output modules (QY41P)
and externally converting transistor outputs into contact outputs.
Replace AY13 with QY41P and connect the relay terminal modules to convert to contact outputs.
With this method, the system can be upgraded without increasing the number of modules on the base unit.
Also, 8 points/common, the same specification as that of the AY13, can be maintained.
