How to Wire Digital Outputs of Ace PLC

All Ace PLCs have some number of digital outputs. Ace digital outputs are sinking transistor outputs – which means that they provide the ground connection turn on a load. When switched on under program control, they complete the circuit to turn on any connected DC device up to 30VDC and 300mA.
Each ouput includes diode snubber protection, for inductive load (solenoids, relays, etc.) protection. The supply voltage, up to 30VDC, which is connected to the load devices, must be connected to the VO terminal pin, next to output 6 of the output port, to enable this protection. All loads connected to a digital output port should be connected to the same DC supply. The load power supply ground must be connected to the ground (next to signal 1) of the output port.
Each output is connected, through a 33K ohm resistor to the VO terminal pin (next to output 6). This acts as a weak pull up. When the output is off (logic state 0), the output will be pulled up to the voltage at the VO terminal. If no power supply connection is made to the VO terminal, the voltage at the VO terminal will come through a 10 ohm resistor and an isolation diode, resulting in a voltage approximately 0.7V below the 5V supply to the PLC. This is enough to allow the PLC outputs to directly interface TTL circuits. If voltage is connected from an external source to the VO terminal, inactive outputs will pull up to the external source voltage.

If AC power, or higher power DC needs to be switched, the Ace’s digital output ports can be connected to a Velocio Relay Terminal Block module, through a short standard cable, supplied with the module. With a Relay module, up to 250VAC and 5 Amps can be switched under program control. The cable diagram connection to the PLC digital output port pluggable connector is illustrated in the Relay Terminal Block module documentation.
