Base module overview, PD 600 Series
PD 600 series DPIs and I/O devices are made up of two parts – the Terminal Base Module and the Electronics Module.
When forming clusters of 600 series modules, it needs to be ensured that the base module used matches the electronics module, in terms of the input and output terminals required. Whilst connectors between electronics and base modules are keyed to prevent incorrect combinations, it should be understood that certain electronics units can be plugged into more than one base module type, in order to provide a variation in input/output connections. For example, a PD 601 DPI electronics unit can use a BM 003 or BM 011 base module, depending whether RJ45 or screw connections are required. Another example involves a PD 620 Digital I/O electronics module, where when combined with a BM 001 base provides 4 input or output terminals, but if combined with a BM 008 base, provides four relay output connections.
The table views below, define possible combinations and resultant connections. Since electronics and base modules have individual part numbers, the user should be aware of the connection requirement at time of order.

User defined labels for I/O marking
For marking the individual I/O’s clearly, a user defined self-adhesive label can be placed on each Base Module. A Word template for printing such labels is available from the download page (use with label sheets part no. 608408).
