With two new X20-series modules, B&R continues on the path of miniaturization. The X20DO8323 offers 8 push/pull outputs in the X20 form factor, and the X20DO6639 is a 6x relay module for 30 VDC or 230 VAC.
The digital outputs on the DO8323 are electrically isolated and can be wired as high-side, low-side or push/pull variants. Therefore the module allows control of up to 4 DC motors operated as a full-bridge with a nominal voltage of 12 to 24 VDC and a rated current of up to 0.5A. When operated as a half-bridge, up to 8 motors can be controlled.
The DO6639 module has 6 isolated relays with normally open contacts. They can be loaded with 2 amps at either 30 VDC or 230 VAC. In this way, B&R has significantly improved the component density for 230 VAC relays.
