IQAN-XA2 Expansion Units

Key Features

  • This unit is designed for high digital I/O count, weather resistance, and safety.
  • XA2 module has new I/O flexibility that allows the user greater freedom in defining signals for measurement and control.
  • Can control proportional valves using current mode (current closed-loop) or PWM mode (voltage open-loop) signals
  • Designed to be rugged, but light and has a sealed, automotive AMP/Tyco power timer connector.

Application 

The IQAN-XA2 is the next generation of expansion module in the IQAN product group and is used with the IQANdesign platform. This unit is designed for high digital I/O count, weather resistance, and safety. 

All IQAN expansion modules communicate with a master over a CAN bus. The XA2 module has new I/O flexibility that allows the user greater freedom in defining signals for measurement and control. 

The IQAN-XA2 can control proportional valves using current mode (current closed-loop) or PWM mode (voltage open-loop) signals. The analog inputs accept 0-5V signals from input devices or sensors. These inputs can also be set up to accept 4 frequency or 2 directional frequency (quadrature) inputs. Many outputs may alternatively be used as digital inputs for switches. The XA2 also has a number of high power digital (on-off) outputs. 

The aluminum housing is designed to be rugged, but light and has a sealed, automotive AMP/Tyco power timer connector. The XA2 has a membrane to prevent condensation inside the housing. This controller is designed for the outdoor environment. 

The unit executes a self-test during start up and cyclic operation. An internal watch dog checks for software errors and will interrupt outputs if errors are detected. The IQAN-XA2 is made using selected components and conforms to strict international requirements. 

Diagnostics: If an error is detected an LED on the top of the controller flashes a sequence to indicate the nature of the error.
