MC3 Current Consumption (and any other module)

Kevin Arscott 5 years ago in Master modules updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 5 years ago 1

Does the current consumption of the module (170mA @ 24V) increase if we start connecting sensors on the VREF pins or does this value include the max draw on both the VREF (140mA x 2)?

Does this apply to all master / expansion modules?


The current consumption listed in the Appendix A is given without any loads.

Example from IQAN-MC3 :

It will increase when loading the VREF:s and when activating outputs. This applies to all IQAN modules.
