RUG9 EXPANSION

The expansion boards listed below expand the functionality and I/O count of the RUG9.   The RUG9 has 8 slots per card cage enabling up to 512 I/O points per unit (8 card cages). All boards below can be used in the RUG9's base card cage.


RUG9 expansion card cages are limited to analog and discrete I/O expansion boards and the loop supply board.   For installation, each board slides into the unit's expansion slot and is secured with a cover plate using a single screw.  All discrete wiring connections are made to the boards using a removable Euro-style screw header that can accept up to 12-guage wires.
