The updated version of the IQAN-XC10 with support for DOUT diagnostics has been released.
DOUT-A to DOUT-P
These high-side DOUT:s can be configured to detect open load when the outputs are off. The detection is based on a shared "strobe" function, giving out a limited current at regular intervals. The detection is suited for loads such as solenoids, but should be kept disabled if any of the high-side DOUT:s are driving smaller load, e.g. LED lamps that will blink when this feature is used.
DOUT-Q to DOUT-T
These low-side DOUT:s can be configured to detect open load when the outputs are on. This diagnostic feature is based on undercurrent detection. The detection is suited for solenoid valves, but should be kept disabled if the DOUT is driving smaller loads, e.g. most relay coils.
The PWMOUT has open load detection based on measuring undercurrent also in previous versions. Now the option to disable undercurrent detection is available.
For more details on the DOUT/PWMOUT diagnostic features, see IQAN-XC10 instruction book, Appendix A.
