PCI Express Digital I/O Card PCIeDIO

PCI Express IO Card with 32 Optically Isolated Digital I/O

The PCI Express Digital I/O card PCIeDIO is a PC add-in card capable of measuring digital inputs and controlling resistive, inductive and capacitive loads in 24V DC industrial applications.

PCI Express I/O board

The card provides 32 digital, opto-isolated I/Os operating at 24V DC. Each IO can either be used as an input or as a high side output with read-back facility. This versatility makes for multiple configurations. Whether an application demands the usage of 16 inputs and 16 outputs, or 24 inputs and 8 outputs, or 3 inputs and 29 outputs, or most extreme, just 32 inputs or 32 outputs, the PCIeDIO fits. Up to 8 cards can be used simultaneously in one PC system. Therefore, up to 256 digital IO can be operated quasi-parallel.

The PCIeDIO card uses latest FPGA technology not only to implement the PCI Express Bridge. Likewise, embedded intelligence is integrated inside for providing many more convenient features like an on-board FIFO, programmable interrupts, programmable timer or watchdog without imposing any unnecessary load on the PC's CPU.

A comprehensive, but easy-to-use software package for Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, Vista and XP supports the PCIeDIO card on multiple versions and architectures (32bit and 64bit) of Windows.

The major fields of application of the PCI Express IO card are associated with automation technology, process technology, measuring and control technology, and testing equipment.

We also offer customization and are capable of modifying the hardware and/or software of the PCIeDIO to some extent. Please feel free to present us your needs and we will see what we can do.
