    8213 ContorlLogix Programmable Limit Switch

    The AMCI 8213 Programmable Limit Switch module for Allen-Bradley ControlLogix systems provides up to sixteen programmable high speed limit switch outputs and sixteen inputs that can be used via an external relay board. This one-slot module's backplane connection enables fast transfer of information between itself and the ControlLogix processor(s). This allows the 8213's many unique software features to become an integral part of your next packaging machine application.

    The 8213 module has two modes of operation, Independent Mode and Group Mode, both of which feature speed compensation (Auto Advance). Configured using the Independent Mode, each output is independent of the others and has a corresponding input that is ANDed with the output.

    Configured using the Group Mode, the outputs are combined into one of six groups. Each group is assigned an Operating Mode that condition how the outputs fire. This configuration replaces the ladder logic that you would typically have to write for such packaging functions as glue gun control or material sensing. In either mode, the outputs are updated every 100microseconds.
