The PEX-C64 and PISO-C64U card is the new generation product that ICP DAS provides to meet RoHS compliance requirement. The new PEX-C64 and PISO-C64U card is designed as a drop-in replacement for the PISO-C64, and users can replace the PISO-C64 by the PEX-C64 and PISO-C64U directly without software/driver modification.
The PISO-C64U universal PCI card supports 3.3 V/5 V PCI bus while the PEX-C64 supports PCI Express bus. These cards provide 64 optically isolated digital output (DO) channels, each of which includes a darlington transistor that provides 3750 Vrms isolation, and an integrated suppression diode for inductive load. These DO channels are allocated into four isolated banks when using four isolated external power supplies. These DO channels act as an interface to field logic signals, eliminate ground-loop problems, and isolate the host computer from damaging voltages. These cards contains has a single DB-37 connector and a single 40-pin male header, each of which contains 32 output channels.
The PEX-C64 and PISO-C64U also adds a Card ID switch on-board. Users can set Card ID and then recognize the board by the ID via software when using two or more PEX-C64 and PIO-C64U cards in one computer.
These cards support various OS versions, such as Linux, DOS, Windows 98/NT/2000 and 32/64-bit Windows 8/7/Vista/XP. DLL and Active X control together with various language sample programs based on Turbo C++, Borland C++, Microsoft C++, Visual C++, Borland Delphi, Borland C++ Builder, Visual Basic, C#.NET, Visual Basic.NET and LabVIEW are provided in order to help users quickly and easily develop their own applications.
