The following article explains how to configure a Desoutter I/O Modules compatible with the Pivotware platform. It also covers the how to use these assets are used in your Pivotware process and steps.
|Type of I/O Module
|How does it work
|6-input, 6 output 24V IO accessory communicating by GPIO and DIO
|Nano I/O is a dedicated PCB device connected to Infinity Client/Module devices by use of two HD15 cables. These HD15 directly connect to GPIO and DIO ports on the breakout of the Client/Module device.
Note: the latest generation of Panel PCs supplied by Desoutter do not support the NANO, since the corresponding DIO/GPIO have been removed.
|16-input, 16 output 24V IO accessory communicating by Ethernet.
|Micro I/O is dedicated predesigned I/O Module with M12 connection for easy integration with sensors, lights, buzzers etc. Infinity Client/Module connect to the I/O Module by Ethernet.
See here for the official Micro and Nano documentation.
Setting Up the Asset
In Asset Manager, create a new asset
- Asset Type = I/O Module
- Asset Vendor = Desoutter
- Device Type = Nano 6I/6O or Micro 16
All other options within the asset properties are optional however we suggest filling is as much as possible while you're here.
From version 7.1 of Infinity Client, it is possible use both Desoutter-supplied hardware and hardware not managed by Desoutter at all. The hardware being used will determine the Desoutter I/O Modules available to be used as well as whether it required to install any additional resources. Please check what type of host machine you are using to run Infinity Client below:
Desoutter Supplied Panel PC
If you are using one of the references below then you should not need to install any additional resources. The drivers required for both Micro I/O and Nano I/O should already be installed in the device's image ready to plug and play
|Desoutter Part Number
|Infinity Station 17" IOT (v7)
|615 932 7450
|Infinity Station 17" IOT
|615 932 7420
|PPC Infinity 17" Client
|615 932 7320
Note: Infinity Station(s) 615 932 7320 and 615 932 7420 are no longer available for purchase.
|The reference 615 932 7320 does not meet the minimum requirements of v7.1 or higher of Infinity Client. If you are using this reference then you may experience some performance. Please contact support if you wish to change to a newer reference of hardware.
If you are using a hardware sourced by yourself or sourced by a supplier other that Desoutter directly then it is only possible to use Micro I/O devices as Nano I/O required a bespoke HD15 connection available only on Desoutter supplied hardware.
Furthermore, it is likely that you will need to install the applicable driver for the Desoutter Micro I/O. To get the applicable driver, please contact support.
Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
The Infinity Base feature is always required for the Infinity Client application to run. All other listed features must be additionally activated in order to use the functionality described in this article:
*Dependent on the I/O Module Asset used.
