Select I/O is an Ethernet networked, single channel granular I/O system for the ABB Ability™ System 800xA automation platform. Select I/O helps decouple project tasks, minimizes the impact of late changes and supports standardization of I/O cabinetry ensuring automation projects are delivered on-time and under budget. A Signal Conditioning Module (SCM) performs the necessary signal conditioning and powering of the connected field device for one I/O channel.

The FTB810 is a field terminal block for a single SCM. The FTB is fitted on the MTU for Select I/O (TUS810), and the SCM is then fitted on the FTB. When an SCM is inserted into the FTB810 for the first time, the coding fingers are set for that type of SCM. This prevents that the SCM can be replaced with the wrong kind. To reset the coding fingers, remove and reinsert the FTB810.

4-wire Field Terminal Block with screws for the Select I/O Module Termination Unit. 10 pieces per package.
