Reviews for IC697MDL940

Product Review

"The IC697MDL940 is a relay output module. Compared to most relay output module, designed to provide a single form of contact output, the IC697MDL940 relay contact output forms are Eight (8) Form C and Eight (8) Form A contact outputs. With this, different loads can be connected to the output channels of this module as well as a wider variety of sequencing can be implemented. " -DO Supply Tech
