    24VDC is a common standard for automation. It has quite a few advantages:
    - Low enough to be safe if someone touches it.
    - High enough to withstand electrical noise from big motors, powerful VFDs and plasma arcs.
    - Carries enough power to energize heavy stuff like contactor coils.
    - Does not need thick wires to go long distances.

    As far as "blowing" stuff, 12 volts can make some spectacular sparks too. Ever dropped a wrench (or a spanner as you call it in UK) across car battery terminals?

    does it means by 12-24v that you can use 15V or 16V
    That is correct. The input optocouplers will work at any voltage between 12 and 24.

    even with diff voltage. yeah i can see it says 12-24v.

    You could use 12V

    does it means by 12-24v that you can use 15V or 16V
    Yes, but the most common power supplies in that range are 12 and 24V.
