How to create a Binary Input or Digital Input on a MPM controller


How to create a Binary Input or Digital Input on a MPM controller


SmartStruxure Lite Multi-Purpose Manager MPM


When a Binary Input is created, the object does not work.

There is no documentation on how to create a Binary Input


In order to use a Binary Input, both the BI object and the corresponding Analog Input AI object must be added from the object list. For example, if you need to use BI3 with a dry contact, you will also need to add AI3 and toggle its "input type" to Ohms, then save the object. You also need to keep the object in the object list.

With regards to “Input type” for the Binary Inputs: (the "input type" property is in the AI object)

-When set in Volts, anything >= 2VDC will be considered a 1 status.
                                   anything < 2VDC will be conspired a 0 status.

-When set in Ohms, anything < 10kOhm will be considered a 1 status.
                                     anything >= 10KOhm will be considered a 0 status.

Note: When "Input type" is set to ohms, a dry contact must be used for the BI to work properly. BO1 and BO2 of the MPM can be used for example, but not the relays of the TE2 as they are not dry contacts by design.
