A 'bread board' area allows the user to add isolators or signal conditioning for inputs or outputs, and we are now able to supply isolation modules fitted. Alternatively we can provide our EX213 or EX230 external termination panels which provide relays for outputs or high level logic isolated inputs respectively ..... Datasheet

PCI215 - 48 lines digital I/O card - PCI

The PCI215 is a PC based digital I/O board that provides 48-bits of parallel I/O and six 16-bit counters for any PCI compatible computer. Up to six interrupt sources can be configured, with two available on each of the 82C55 chips and one on each of the 82C54 chips. We include the AmpDIO library of drivers which increases the flexibility and control of this board with 8 specific digital I/O functions, and 44 specific counter/timer functions ..... Datasheet

PCI272 - 72 lines digital I/O card - PCI

The 72 digital I/O lines of the PCI272 are arranged in three clusters of three 8-bit ports which can be programmed as inputs or outputs, separately or collectively giving tremendous flexibility of operation. This board can be used as a building block to create large systems based on other products from our 200 series. These include the EX200 series of external panels which provided input and output isolation, or relays, and terminals for connecting signals ..... Datasheet

PCI263 - 16 x Reed relay card - PCI
