PIO-16/16L(LPCI)H Digital I/O Low Profile PCI card 16ch/16ch (isolated 12 - 24VDC)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

    This PCI-compliant interface board for 12 - 24 VDC digital signal input/output. PIO-16/16L(LPCI)H offers 16 input and output channels. The module offers Windows or Linux driver (API-PAC(W32). The module features brackets for standard PCI slots.

    • A different external power supply can be used for each common pin as it is shared by 16 channels.
    • The PCI bus (personal computer) and the I/O interface are isolated from each other by an opto-coupler, offering good noise immunity.
    • You can use all input signals as interrupt inputs. You can also select the interrupt trigger edge of the input signal.
    • The board has a digital filter to prevent noise or chatter from causing erroneous inputs.
