 Applying voltages greater than 12v to the DI, UI, DO, UO, or GND terminals will cause permanent damage to the Edge28 circuitry. 

Digital Inputs

There are 7 Digital Inputs on the Edge28 Controller.  
Digital Inputs are used to detect Open/Closed Circuit switched signals.  These include switches, relay signals, and dry contact outputs from other devices.  

Digital Inputs are connected between the Ground(GND) terminal and the selected DI terminal.  There is no polarity for Digital Input wiring (ie. input wires can be swapped).

Universal Inputs

There are 7 Universal Inputs on the Edge28 Controller.
Universal Inputs are used to detect Analog OR Digital signals.  They support several types of input signals (detailed below). 

Universal Inputs are connected between the Ground(GND) terminal and the selected UI terminal.   There is usually a correct polarity for Universal Inputs (ie. correct wire must be on UI# terminal). 

Universal Inputs support the following types of input signals:
  1. Resistance - Input is based on resistance.  The most commonly used resistance input is Thermistor temperature sensors where resistance varies with change in temperature.  There is no polarity for Resistance inputs (ie. input wires can be swapped).  
  2. 0-10vdc - Input is based on DC voltage signal over the range of 0v to 10v.  This voltage range is related to a defined range on the device that produces the 0-10v signal. 
  3. 4-20mA - Input is based on current signal over the range of 4mA to 20mA.  This current range is related to a defined range on the device that produces the 4-20mA signal.  Because this signal is based on loop current it does not suffer from voltage loss due to long wire runs, or damage to the wire. 
  4. Digital - Only 2 possible states: either an Open circuit or a Closed circuit.   There is no polarity for Digital inputs (ie. input wires can be swapped).  

To switch between the various Universal Input signal types, the onboard UI type selection pins must be configured with the correct jumper setting.  There are 7 sets of UI configuration pins, each of these sets of pins has 3 possible jumper positions.

Digital Outputs

There are 5 Digital Outputs on the Edge28 Controller.
Digital Outputs can either output 0v or 12vdc.  They are most commonly used to energize a 12vdc interface relay.   Can also be used to energize an LED or other devices with low current draw. 

Digital Outputs are connected between the Ground(GND) terminal and the selected DO terminal.   There is a correct polarity for Digital Outputs (ie. correct wire must be on D# terminal).

Universal Outputs

There are 7 Universal Outputs on the Edge28 Controller.
Universal Outputs are used to drive Analog OR Digital signals.  They support several types of output signals (detailed below). 

Universal Outputs are connected between the Ground(GND) terminal and the selected UO terminal.   There is correct polarity for Universal Outputs (ie. correct wire must be on UO# terminal).  

Universal Outputs support the following types of output signals:
  1. 0-10vdc - Output is a DC voltage signal in the range of 0v to 10vdc.   These can drive actuators, speed signals, etc...
  2. Digital - Digital Outputs can either output 0v or 12vdc.  Most commonly used to energize a 12vdc interface relays, or drive LEDs.

Relay Outputs

There are 2 Relay Outputs on the Edge28 Controller.
Relay Outputs are a dry contact switched output.  The relay is internal to the Edge28 controller. 

Relay Outputs are connected between the A and B terminals for each R1/R2 Relay Output.   There is no polarity for Relay Output wiring (ie. output wires can be swapped).  
Relay Outputs have a maximum voltage and current rating.  Max 2 amps @ 48vac.
