Both the GPIO inputs and outputs are optically isolated.

GPIO Inputs
To trigger an input detection, a GPIO input pair would need to have a voltage difference applied to them of between 5v and 24v (across the GPIO +ve and –ve pair).
5v Differential Max Current 1mA
24v Differential Max Current 5mA
There is a resistor on the board for the I/Ps so the Voltages can be applied directly across the hot and cold pins


GPIO Outputs
For the GPIO outputs, these are the collector and emitter junctions of a transistor and the safe max voltage across them would be;
Max Collector / Emitter junction 24V
Max Current 100mA.


Common
Each Input and Output also gives a +5v rail which is protected by a 500mA poly fuse, and a good 0v ground.
