The Allen-Bradley 1769-OW16 compact AC/DC relay module provides 16 normally open outputs. The 1769-OW16 supports voltage rating ranges from 5 volts AC to 265 volts AC and from 5 volts DC to 125 volts DC. This module can be employed by controllers such as the CompactLogix controller or the MicroLogix 1500 controller. The 1769-OW16 module can be used in several applications mainly in the industrial field. For example, the 1769-OW16 module can be assembled with a 1769-ADN DeviceNet adapter or with a 1769-AENTR Ethernet adapter. The 1769-OW16 module offers the flexibility during the installation and mounting steps with two mounting M4 or #8 screws panel mounting which should be well-grounded or on EN 50 022 – 35 x 7.5 or EN 50 022 – 35 x 15 DIN rails.

The minimum on-state current for this module is 10 milliamps and the output delay is 10 milliseconds. This Allen-Bradley 1769-OW16 compact AC/DC relay contact module can be supplied through 1769 Compact I/O power supplies such as 1769-PA2, 1769-PB2, 1769-PA4, 1769-PB4 power supplies except when connected to a MicroLogix 1500 base with a current consumption of 205 milliamps.

The 1769-OW16 Allen-Bradley module can be connected easily to either the controller or to an adjacent I/O module before or after mounting. The 1769-OW16 module dissipates an electrical power of 4.75 watts. This 1769-OW16 module is intended for use in a mainly industrial environment that is clean and dry (Pollution degree 2) and to circuits not exceeding Over Voltage Category II (IEC 60664-1). The 1769-OW16 relay contact module provides 2 isolated groups of 8 points each which permit to group and control both AC and DC loads on one module. This module weighs approximately 450 grams (0.992 pounds) while shipping. This Allen-Bradley module works properly at 0 to 60 degrees Celsius (32 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit).

The 1769-OW16 is an AC/DC relay contact I/O module by Allen-Bradley. This module is part of the 1769 CompactLogix series. It offers 16 contacts that are Normally Open and are split into two individually isolated groups of eight. This module is compatible with the MicroLogix and CompactLogix series of controllers. The module may be installed as an expansion I/O after the base unit or to any Compact I/O that is adjacent when used with the MicroLogix 1500 series. The module supports installation as a local or expansion I/O when used with a CompactLogix system. The 1769-OW16 occupies one slot in either system and input power is supplied via the communication bus.

Adjustable module parameters include slot assignment, packet interval, and module inhibition. The contact ratings for this module are 0.22 Amperes at 125 Volts DC, 28 volt-amperes; 7.5 Amperes at 240 Volts AC, 1800 Volt-Amperes for Make and 0.75 Amperes at 240 Volts AC, 180 Volt-Amperes for Break. 2.5 Amperes is the current limit per point for a current limit of 20 Amperes per module. Mounting using a panel or DIN rail mount is supported by this module. This unit weighs approximately 2 pounds and has dimensions 4.65 x 2.07 x 3.43 inches. Use of the 138-millimeter mounting tabs increases the height requirement to 5.43 inches.
