The Allen-Bradley 1762-OW8 is an 8-point AC/DC relay-type output module for use with MicroLogix 1200 programmable controllers. It is part of the Bulletin 1762 MicroLogix Expansion I/O Module series. It provides flexibility in industrial environments by maximizing the I/O capabilities of controllers in terms of type and count. Its rackless modular design reduces replacement parts inventory and boosts cost savings. Plus, the 1762-OW8 can be mounted on a panel or a DIN rail.
The 1762-OW8 Output Module has an AC/DC normally-open relay voltage category with an operating range of 5 to 265 Volts AC and 5 to 125 Volts DC. It has a maximum bus current draw of 80 mA at 5 Volts DC (0.40 Watts) and 90 mA at 24 Volts DC (2.16 Watts). Its maximum continuous current per common is 8 A, and it is 16 A per module. This device should be installed 6 modules away from the host device’s power supply. It houses two isolated output groups – outputs 0 to 3, and outputs 4 to 7. The 1762-OW8 Relay Output Module can be mounted on the EN 50 022 35 x 7.5 millimeters or the EN 50 022 35 x 15 millimeters DIN rails. For installation in high vibration or shock environments, use DIN rail end anchors. For greater vibration requirements, opt for panel mounting. For both DIN rail and panel mounting, keep debris from falling into the 1762-OW8 module to avoid any damage.
