Remote I/O Module (RIO) programming: Can I/O tags (outputs) from two different RIO modules be connected to Dual-output objects?

Issue

Remote I/O Module (RIO) programming: Can I/O tags (outputs) from two different RIO modules be connected to Dual-output objects?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

  • MNB-1000
  • MNB-1000-15

Cause

The object error will occur "Outputs must connect to the same remote module".

Resolution

Details: Dual-output objects are objects with two addressable outputs. There are three such objects: Momentary Start/Stop Object, Floating Actuator Object and Floating Actuator Priority Object. When connecting dual-output objects to I/O tags on an MNB-1000 application drawing where MNB-1000-15 remote I/O modules have been configured, be sure to connect both outputs to the same set of I/O, whether that be the MNB-1000 controller’s onboard I/O or a particular MNB-1000-15 module’s I/O.
