About 1746-NI8/A

The 1746-NI8 Series A high-resolution analog input module is a high-density analog input module by Allen-Bradley designed to provide high accuracy and fast analog signal conversion. This single-slot module is capable of sensing any combination of up to 8 voltage or current inputs, and it can fit into any of the fixed Allen-Bradley SLC 500 or Modular SLC processors except slot 0. The 1746-NI8 Series A module comes with a removable terminal block that provides direct connection to 8 analog input channels, which can be configured for analog current and voltage input signals. This module’s 8 channels can be wired for either differential or single-ended inputs, and it has an onboard DIP switch that allows the operators to select either the voltage or current input. The 1746-NI8 Series A module has a maximum isolated backplane current draw of 100 milliAmps at 24 Volts DC and maximum power consumption of 3.4 Watts.

The 1746-NI8 Series A module supports both the successive approximation and switched capacitor analog-to-digital (ADC) conversion methods. These analog-to-digital converters help the module read analog input signals and then convert them to digital values. The 1746-NI8 Series A module has input filtering capability on each input channel to reject high frequency, and it is capable of performing auto-calibration on all the available (enabled) input channels. It has self-diagnostic features that alert the operators to faults upon start-up or normal channel operation, and it comes with front-panel LED indicators that show the module’s status. The 1746-NI8 Series A module supports both Class 1 (8 input and 8 output word use) and Class 3 (16 input and 12 output word use) setups. The 1746-NI8 Series A module has a 0 to 55 degrees Celsius operating temperature range, and it is UL, CSA, and CE certified.
