  • Connect DB37 cables from OP4810-IO/OP4815-IO to external devices (motors, controllers, etc.).

  • Connect the I/O expansion cables from OP4810-IO/OP4815-IO to external devices, if applicable.

    • Cables used depends on I/O expansion option.

Connecting the Ground Screw

You must connect a grounding cable from the OP4810-IO/OP4815-IO ground screw to the rack to ensure that the device terminates securely in a ground.
Proper grounding helps prevent electric shocks, protects the simulator from voltage spikes (from a variety of causes, including lightening strikes), and provides increased immunity from EMI by lowering noise levels and emissions.

  • Select a flat braided grounding strap of adequate length (as short as possible to provide the best protection), with ring terminals on each end.

  • Attach one ring terminal to the ground screw on the OP4810-IO/OP4815-IO.

  • Attach the other ring terminal to the rack using a nut and lock washer.

Make sure that the power switch at the rear of the unit is easily accessible for emergency shutdown.
