Industrologic, Inc., announces the release of their UWDTIE Universal Standalone Watchdog Timer for PLC's and industrial computer systems.
The UWDTIE can be used to increase the reliability of nearly any PLC, industrial microcontroller board, or industrial computer system by monitoring a signal, and activating an emergency stop (E-Stop) circuit if the signal is no longer present.
It has been designed to allow easy connection to a variety of systems, and has an opto-isolated digital trigger input that can be activated with a switched voltage or logic level signal.
The UWDTIE is based on discrete logic and relay drive circuitry and has a fail-safe design optimized for E-Stop circuitry. On-board LEDs indicate the status of power and relay activation.
The UWDTIE can be powered by 12 volts system power or with a wallblock power supply, either through a pin type power connector or screw terminals.
The contacts of the 10 amp Form "C" relay on the UWDTIE are provided at a 3 pin screw terminal block for connection to an E-Stop circuit or other failure detection circuit.
