The CSNK Version 2 plugs into a cpNode, IOX16 or IOX32 and provides 16 high voltage/current outputs using the ULN2803 chip. Loads of up to 60 Volts and 0.5A may handled (but not all 16 at once!). Internal clamp diodes are provided for inductive loads (see application note). Outputs are spaced at 0.156" so traditional CMRI style Molex adapters may be used or 0.100" screw terminals are available. The CSNK is ideal for situations where you need to drive high current devices (incandescent lamps) and inductive loads. CSNK offers compatibility with existing systems using 12V power for signals.
If you need to drive more than 0.5A, check out our Sounder Driver which can handle up to 10A (momentary) and provides a clamping diode.
Dual male pin header is included for direct terminal block connection to the I/O ports
