It was recently discovered that there’s incompatibility between the X80 DI modules (BMXDDI3202K/6402K) and ABE7H16S43. The leakage current through the red LED (blown fuse indicator) is greater than the threshold current of X80 DI modules and through this path the voltage applied to DI module’s port is greater than the threshold as well.  As of 10/14/2019 the modules are not compatible. 

The following can be used:

Connection bases ->  ABE-7H08R**, ABE-7H08S21, ABE-7H16R**, ABE-7H16S21, ABE-7H16R23

Input adapter connection bases -> ABE-7S16E2** and ABE-7P16F3**
