PLC-RSC- 24DC/21 - Relay Module

PLC-INTERFACE, consisting of basic terminal block PLC-BSC.../21 with screw connection and plug-in miniature relay with power contact, for assembly on DIN rail NS 35/7,5, 1 changeover contact, input voltage 24 V DC

  • Slim design
  • Efficient connection to system cabling using V8 adapter
  • RT III sealed relay
  • Safe isolation between coil and contact side
  • Functional plug-in bridges
  • Integrated input circuit and interference suppression circuit
Technical Specifications


Notes on operationSeparating plate PLC-ATP must be installed for voltages larger than 250 V (L1, L2, L3) between identical terminal blocks in adjacent modules. Potential bridging is then carried out with FBST 8-PLC... or FBST 500....
