Brentek Solves The Problem Of Obsoleted Quad Modules In Systems

Brentek International, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of Watchdog Timers, Dry Contact Relays, Double Density I/O Modules, High-density and Universal I/O Racks, Pulse Stretching Input Modules, and Custom I/O and Timing Modules for automation and control systems.

With QUAD modules obsolete throughout the industry, the problem of how to deal with legacy systems using QUAD modules remains… until now.

Brentek introduces the new Gx2-QUAD Adapter is designed for direct plug-in replacement of QUAD-type I/O modules. The adapters allow a system using QUAD-type modules to be quickly updated to DUAL-type modules with no wiring changes. Each adapter replaces a single quad module and may be replaced one at a time or in multiples. Each Gx2-QUAD adapter holds (2) Gx2-Series™ Dual I/O modules.

Example: a Brentek DRY5Q Quad Dry Output Module may be replaced by a single Gx2-QUAD adapter and (2) Gx2-DRY5 DUAL Dry Output modules.

The Gx2-QUAD adapter provides a seamless upgrade with control lines and filed lines matching the QUAD module operating. The modules’ indicator LED sequence is also duplicated to match by physical position. Adapter socket GXS1 replaces the QUAD module channels 1 & 2 (Module LED ‘B’ represents QUAD channel 1, and LED ‘A’ represents QUAD channel 2), while socket GXS2 replaces the QUAD module channels 3 & 4 (Module LED ‘B’ represents QUAD channel 3 and LED ‘A’ represents QUAD channel 4).
