  • BRX 24v

    Hello all, moving from 205 style to BRX. I an 8 point analog input BX-08AD-1 that is wired with a ziplink . I cant seem to provide 24v to the module as required. I as using a separate power supply (not the one off the plc) does anyone know where on zip module the 24V should go? I have studied the pin-outs but everything I try shorts the power supply.
    Thanks

        There were labels that came in the cable bag that should show where everything wires to.

          According to the module insert, 24v is on pin 20, and 0v is on pin 19.

          If you look at tyhe cable you are supposed to use, insert is here: https://cdn.automationdirect.com/sta...EM-CBL20-n.pdf
          It says pin 20 on terminal 1 (BRX end) goes to pin 24 in the ziplink end. Terminal 1, pin 19 goes to terminal 2, pin 23.

          on the labels themselves: https://cdn.automationdirect.com/sta...EM-CBL20-n.pdf
          It clearly lists 24v on the middle row, end terminal. So my guess is you are using the wrong labels and could be about to fry something.
          (or end of the top row if you are using the older ZL-RTB20 ziplink boards)

          You can also see in the ziplink module insert here: https://cdn.automationdirect.com/sta...zl-rtb20-1.pdf
          That pin 23 and 24 of the cable go to B7 and B8 pins, which are the end of the middle row.

              All of this to find which terminals are what.

              AD has done a very poor job of consolidating all of this info into a single document or manual. I hate using ZipLink especially because of this and the label sheets that were folded, exposing the adhesive, drying it out so that they won't stick.

                I also do not care for the labels, especially when you have several ziplink modules.
                To aid in wiring up multiple ziplink modules with extended X-Y numbers, I made up some Zebra Printer labels.
                Cut them up and apply to show the acutal X?? or Y?? on the ziplink.

                  For my Point to Point, I tossed the Zip Link into Paint, and Moved a few things around.. then printed out one of these for each RTB-20 that had the Names Changed to reflect the Present use.. this is lower left of a BRX..

                  This is Lower Right of My BRX.. Then for the Servo Drives I did the RTB50..

                  Then I print them out and write all sorts of notes on them, and then wire it up..

                  EDIT:.. Notice I install the Connectors 'Upside Down', and I flipped the Graphics to represent this.. this allows me to actually 'See' the Input Pockett of the wire..

                    They need to change the modules to a cable clamp type and find an area to have the labels on top facing out. The angles are horrible and I also dislike using them.

                      I really like the Ziplink modules and cables. I guess I'm in the minority.

                      I believe the reason the included labeling doesn't have specific I/O is due to AD not knowing if your module is #1 or #4, so they provide generic 1-8/1-16/1-32 numbering. In my experience what AD offers is 100% superior to that of Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley.

                      However, I am with others that cable clamp termination and terminals angled so they're easier to read would be great.
                      Why worry? If you've done the best you can, worrying won't make it any better
