IntelliLogger Input/Output (I/O) Expansion
Additional analog (thermocouple, voltage, current) and digital (Event, Frequency, Counter and output) channels can readily be added to IntelliLogger models with the connection of ILIM-7 or ILIM-2 Expansion Modules. Intelliloggers equipped with the BBus port capability (IL-20, IL-80, IL-90) are expanded by simply daisy-chain connecting one or more Expansion Modules. A CAT-5 Ethernet cable is used (provided with the module) for the interconnection and up to 100’ can separate the IntelliLogger and a module.
For applications with 5 or less modules, the IntelliLogger System Base can provide both the communication AND the power for the modules via this BBus interconnect. For systems utilizing more than 5 Expansion Modules or long interconnecting runs, a BPB-1 BBus Power Booster can be used to inject power into the BBus daisy-chain network.
One or more Expansion Modules can readily be added to an IntelliLogger System Base. The BBus interconnect allows the modules to be located distant from the IntelliLogger minimizing transducer/signal wiring runs.
With the use of the Expansion Module Mounting bracket, modules can be attached to the IntelliLogger Base implementing a single package increased I/O instrument.
