CueStation Expansion Module

Overview

The CueStation Digitial I/O Module adds 8 contact closure inputs and 8 digital low-voltage outputs to the CueStation bus. These I/O signals can be used to interface with external devices such as contact closures, pushbuttons, key switches, LED indicators, relays and more.

The I/O Module uses the 5-Wire CueStation Bus for maximum reliability and network cable distances. Two RJ-45 jacks on each Module allow multiple Modules to be connected together easily using short CAT-5 type jumper cables. A simple spring-terminal on each Input and Output allows for the attachment of discrete wiring.

The Module is furnished in a DIN-Rail compatible enclosure. The DIN-Rail clips can be removed to facilitate surface mounting of the Module with two screw holes. The PCB may also be removed from the housing for other custom installations.

Typical applications include architectural lighting in commercial and residential buildings, building management, entertainment lighting, trade shows, themed entertainment, museums, and others.
