There are two types of RC7 controller:
One controller has a safety box and the other a safety board. You can determine which I/O card is needed by the following:

If the I/O board has no chip it talks to the safety box.
If the I/O board has a chip it talks to the safety board.  
Once this is determined see description and part number below for correct I/O board.

If a new board is needed see reference below:

PNP type used with Safety Box – 410010-3290
NPN type used with Safety Box – 410010-3280
PNP type used with Safety Board – 410010-3270
