The XP95 Input/Output Unit provides a voltage-
free, single pole, change-over relay output, a single,
monitored switch input and an unmonitored, non-
polarised opto-coupled input.

The Input/Output Unit supervises one or more
normally-open switches connected to a single pair
of cables. It is set to return an analogue value of 4
in the event of an open or short-circuit fault and 16
during normal operation. The status of the inputs is
reported by means of two input bits.

The change-over contact is operated by an output
Part no 55000-818 (surface mount)
The XP95 Input/Output Unit is loop powered and
operates at 17-28V DC with protocol voltage pulses
of 5-9V. The output (or forward command) bits from the
control panel have the following function:
The unit will operate only with control equipment Output bits 2 and 1 are not used.
