The Automation Direct Facts Engineering Koyo F0-04THM is a 16-bit, four channel thermocouple input module. It is one of many modules designed to interface with DirectLogic 05 and DirectLogic 06 series programmable logic controllers. This module converts incoming voltage signals into 16-bit digital values for the PLC. These digital values do not need any extra work, as they are presented in ℃ and ℉. Because it converts voltage signals, the module can be configured to read a number of voltages. Formatting options include 0-39.0625mVDC, +/-39.0625mVDC, +/-78.125mVDC, 0-156.25mV, +/-156.25mVDC and 0-1.25VDC.
Module calculations are based on data provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), ensuring precise and accurate readings. This precision is further amplified by the signal processing features integrated into the module. These features include thermocouple linearization, data filtering, and automatic cold junction compensation (CJC). F0-04THM can detect a wide range of temperatures, depending on the input range selected by the user. Supported input ranges are Types J, E, K, R, S, T, B, N, and C. Since it communicates with the controller’s internal computer, the module requires specific software to operate. If installing the module in a DL05 controller, firmware version 4.60 or later and DirectSOFT32 version 3.0c or later is necessary for operating. If using a DL06 PLC instead, firmware version 1.40 or later and DirectSOFT32 version 4.0, build 16 or later is needed.
Following all storage and installation parameters is necessary to maintain the integrity of the module. When operating in a DL05/06 controller, the ambient temperatures of the facility can range from 0℃ to 60℃, or 32℉ to 140℉. Storage temperatures can fall as low as -20℃, or -4℉, and can raise as high as 70℃, or 158℉. Automation Direct provided technical support for F0-04THM. All installation and device information can be found in the module’s user manual and datasheet.
