6ES5441-8MA11 - Digital Output Module - SIEMENS
The digital output modules convert the internal signal level of the programmable controller to the external binary signal level required for the process.
The failsafe digital output module contains an integral test circuit. It is a source or a sink output module (to be chosen via an external switch). The module can be used for safety related applications. For that, it must be plugged into both sub modules.
All other digital output mod ules are only approved for non safety related functions.
The modules have mechani cal coding and are plugged onto the bus units. This also establishes contact with the terminal block for the signal cables. The latter need not be detached when replacing a module (fixed wiring).
The modules have fixed slot coding. Address assignments are thus not necessary and addresses are not shifted if modules are replaced or if the module configuration contains unassigned slots.
The digital output module 6ES5 453-8MA11 is optionally available as a source or a sink output module.
Siemens is an international group of German origin specializing in high technology and present in the sectors of industry, energy and health. It was founded in 1847 by Werner von Siemens.
