Chapter 1:Input Output (IO) Basics
A digital input typically consists of a power supply (voltage source), a switch and a voltage-sensing device (analog-to-digital
converter). Depending on the switchs open/closed status, the sensing device detects a voltage or no voltage condition, which in
turn generates a logical 0 or 1, on or off, alarm or normal or similarly defined state.
The following circuit diagrams are examples of commonly used digital input configurations.
