Autonics 8-Pin Plug Sensor Controller, PA-12

Power amplifier, NPN / PNP switching, Relay SPDT(1c) 1개


An 8-pin plug-type sensor controller/amplifier is the Autonics PA-12. The operational voltage is 110/220VAC with a 50/60Hz frequency, and the input logic is NPN open collector & NPN universal/PNP open collector & PNP universal (set by switch). The control output is a relay SPDT (1c) (set by switch).

As a quick report, this sensor controller provides:

  • NPN open collector & NPN universal/PNP open collector & PNP universal (set by switch)
  • 1 Connected Sensors
  • 110/220 VAC ~ 50/60 Hz (set by switch) power supply
  • Max. 4VA Power consumption
  • Relay SPDT(1c) 1개 control output
  • 12 VDC (approx. 50mA) Power for external sensor
  • Socket plug-in type (8-pin)


There are limitations in temperature and humidity in which PA-12 timer is used:

  • Ambient temperature: -10 … 50°C
  • Ambient humidity: 35 to 85%RH
  • Storage humidity: 35 to 85%RH

Environment resistance is rated at no freezing or condensation.
