The innovative "Double Density" design of the new SixTRAK® Combination I/O Module (model ST-MIX-16880-D) provides sixteen discrete inputs, eight discrete outputs, and eight analog inputs in a single, compact unit. The ST-MIX-16880-D joins the line of 25+ SixTRAK I/O modules that provide local I/O expansion for SIXNET controllers and RTUs.The small size and convenient combination of I/O types in the ST-MIX-16880-D are perfect for I/O deployments with a modest number of discrete and analog I/O. Use the ST-MIX-16880-D in lieu of individual modules for each I/O type in order to minimize required space, installation time, and cost. For instance, the ST-MIX-16880-D is ideally suited for small RTU or remote station applications.The ST-MIX-16880-D is "process quality" I/O. Thus it has a 16 bit A/D converter for precision measurements, and "hot swap" capability for switching or replacing modules in live systems. SIXNET I/O is engineered to withstand the abuse of harsh industrial environments. The ST-MIX-16880-D is vibration and surge resistant, operates in temperatures ranging from -40 to +70°C, and is CE, UL, CSA, and Class 1, Division 2 (Zone 2) rated. The module also has Det Norske Veritas (DNV) No. 2.4 (Class A & B) certification for marine and offshore use.SIXNET also has over 40 other I/O modules from instrumentation analog inputs to high speed digital counters to meet the needs of most I/O applications.
