  • Publication number: 20210232113
    Abstract: A method, system and apparatus for identifying a type of device connected to I/O (Input/Output) channels of an I/O module, can involve applying a current for a predefined time duration to one or more I/O channels of an I/O module, initiating a current readback at a regular interval of time within the predefined time duration, determining values of the current readback for each of a time interval during the predefined time duration, storing the values of the current readback in a memory associated with the I/O module, determining a pattern as a function of the values of the current readback and a sample of time interval for a device connected to the one or more I/O channels, and identifying a type of the device connected to the one or more I/O channels based on a determined pattern of a current sink of the device connected to the one or more I/O channels.

  • Patent number: 8392626
    Abstract: A programmable channel circuit can include a control circuit having at least one bidirectional I/O terminal, at least one programming terminal, and one or more processing elements, and an interface circuit having first and second field terminals. The interface circuit is coupled to the control circuit via the processing elements. The control circuit can be operable to respond to a programming signal on the programming terminal for automatically selecting one of a plurality of communications modes. The selection couples the bidirectional I/O terminal to the first terminal via one of the processing elements associated with the selected communications mode.
