The 1746-IM16 is an Allen-Bradley AC input module that is part of the SLC-500 series. The 1746-IM16’s heat dissipation rating is 0.35 watts per point, its minimum wattage is 0.425 watts, and its total wattage is 6 watts. The 1746-IM16 operates with a voltage of 200-240V AC for the signal input and its operating voltage is 170-265V AC at 47-63Hz. In addition, the 1746-IM16 has 16 input points with 16 points per common. Its backplane current is 0.085A at 5V DC or 0A at 24V DC. For signal delays, the 1746-IM16 has a maximum of 35ms and 45ms ON and OFF delays, respectively.


The 1746-IM16’s maximum off-state voltage is 50V AC, its maximum off-state current is 2mA, and its nominal input current is 12mA at 240V. The 1746-IM16’s maximum inrush current is 1.6A and its maximum inrush current time is 0.5ms. Despite affecting the operation of the 1746-IM16 input module, a current limiting resistor can be used for minimizing the inrush current. An AC input device e.g. the 1746-IM16, needs to be compatible with the SLC-500 input circuit’s inrush current.


The 1746-IM16 AC input module’s operating temperature range of 0-60 º C, at a storage temperature range of -40-85 º C and a humidity of 5-95% in a non-condensing environment for operation and storage. The 1746-IM16 adheres to the ICS 2-230 NEMA standards for noise immunity. The 1746-IM16 meets the Class I, Division 2 Groups A, B, C, and D requirements for use in hazardous environments. The 1746-IM16 has an operating shock rating of 30G.
