What are the functions of the inputs on the C445 Global Motor Management Relay?

The 4 inputs on the C445 Base Control Module can be ordered to support 120vac or 24vdc.

If either the Local or Remote control source is configured for “Fieldwire”, these inputs are dedicated to starting/stopping the motor via the control/fault relay contact outputs. The exact functionality of the I/O is determined based on the Operating Mode the C445 is configured for, i.e. Direct (FVNR), Reversing, Star/Delta, 2-Speed and so on. Wiring diagrams for each operation mode and input voltage can be found in Chapter 5 of the Power Xpert C445 Global Motor Management Relay user manual.

The User Interface also has 4 24vdc inputs on it. These are general purpose inputs that can be monitored by a controller via communications.
