The Kinetic Systems 3473 Contact Input CAMAC Module is a single-width CAMAC module providing 24 individually isolated contact sense circuits and change-of-state indication. The sense circuit detects the presence or absence of voltage at its terminals and is suitable for sensing such remote process contact closures as limit switches, machine tool relay contacts, pressure switches, manual switches, and mercury-wetted contacts. Four voltage options are available: 12 VDC, 24 VDC, 48 VDC, and 120 VAC.

Input isolation is achieved by using LED/phototransistor optical isolators. Each circuit is a floating two-wire circuit with common-mode voltage isolation greater than 500 volts. Each option has 24 circuits with identical input voltage ratings, and the switching threshold is approximately one half the rated input voltage. Each input circuit draws more than five but less than ten milliamperes. The logic convention is such that a contact closure (input voltage present) is interpreted as a logical “1.” Each input is conditioned by filtering after the optical isolator. The filter time constant is 100 milliseconds. Other time constant options are available by special order.

The 3473 contains a 24-bit memory register and a 24-bit comparator. If one or more of the inputs has changed state (1-to-0 or 0-to-1) since the last time the memory register was updated, a common LAM status is set. This can produce a LAM request directing the computer program to read the current state of the inputs.
