X2 pinout[edit | edit source]

X2 is 6 pin wire terminal for logic voltage supply, Safe torque off input, analog output and relay driver outputs.

Pin number Signal name Usage
1 GND Ground
2 24V 24V logic supply
3 STO Safe torque off input (this pin also available in X1, as defined in SimpleMotion V2 port
4 VFD 0-12V analog output where voltage level is proportional to PWM duty cycle on pin PWM on X4. PWM frequency must be between 100 and 10000 Hz.
5 RL1 Relay coil driver output 1. When RLIN1 on X4 is logic high, RL1 is pulled to GND by an open collector circuit. When RLIN1 is low, RL1 is floating (max 24V). When connecting a relay that has 24VDC coil between RL1 and supplied 24V, no external free-wheeling diode is needed. Output current rating is max 500 mA.
6 RL2 Relay coil driver output 2. When RLIN2 on X4 is logic high, RL2 is pulled to GND by an open collector circuit. When RLIN1 is low, RL2 is floating (max 24V). When connecting a relay that has 24VDC coil between RL2 and supplied 24V, no external free-wheeling diode is needed. Output current rating is max 500 mA.

X3 pinout[edit | edit source]

X3 is two pin wire terminal for HV DC bus supply.
