The NEXSYS Square Wave Oscillator (CT1, CT2) is a Series A (4 pin) device that detects a signal level state change as the event which triggers output oscillation. The oscillating function will become active based on the state of an input signal level and will persist until the input level is reversed.
28V: Operating Voltage (nom.), 4 mA current draw (max.).
GND: Continuous Ground required.
INPUT: The INPUT level determines if the device is in STANDBY or ACTIVE mode. The device can be specified to shift from STANDBY to ACTIVE on an INPUT state transition from a) +28 VDC to Ground or b) from Ground to +28 VDC.
OUTPUT: The Square Wave Oscillator offers two output options based on the state of the OUTPUT signal when device is in STANDBY. The specified oscillation frequency options range from between 0.25 Hz and 500 Hz. The output load capacity is 0.5A (Resistive).
Oscillator (CT1): Ground when STANDBY and oscillating between High Impedance and Ground at specified frequency when ACTIVE.
Oscillator (CT2): Open when STANDBY and oscillating between High Impedance and Ground at specified frequency when ACTIVE.
