Analog Output Universal PCI Card has high-density design.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring 32 analog output channels, 14-bit PCI-1724U has universal PCI connector that is compatible with 5 and 3.3 V signaling. Various DLL drivers enable software-based I/O functions, and unit is designed for synchronized output, which eliminates existence of any time delay in system. When system is hot reset, unit can still keep its output values. Unit features isolation up to 1,500 V and output range of -10 to +10 V at 0-20 and 4-20 mA.

Advantech Releases14-bit, High-Density Analog Output Universal PCI Card

PCI-1724U offers higher density than most other output cards, offering cost-effective option for applications with many analog channels

Cincinnati, Ohio (February 14, 2005) - With 32 analog output channels, the new PCI-1724U from Advantech Corporation, Industrial Automation Group has higher density than most analog output cards in the market and therefore represents a cost-effective option for applications with many analog channels. It is designed with a universal PCI connector, compatible with both 5V and 3.3 signaling. This function enables the PCI-1724U to be applied with either 5V or 3.3V signaling for different system integrations.

Furthermore, isolation up to 1,500 V ensures that the card can be used in a rugged environment such as those common in industrial control systems. Driver support is provided with a wide range of DLL drivers that enable complex software-based I/O functions.

Flexible output range of -10 ~ +10V, at 0~20mA, and 4~20mA makes PCI-1724U suitable for versatile use. Some examples include: V-command motion control, multiple loop PID control, servo control, programmable voltage source or current sink, and process control.

The PCI-1724U is designed for synchronized output, which ensures that no time delay exists in your system. This is necessary in some applications such as dual-systems or system applications with many devices running in parallel.

When the system is hot reset (power is not shut off), PCI-1724U can still keep its output values. This practical function eliminates dangers caused by unexpected system resets.

PCI-1724U has BoardID design. BoardID switch takes Plug & Play to the next level. While Plug & Play makes installation easier when you install a PCI card in your PC, Plug & Play cannot deal with two identical cards in the same PC. The PC is simply unable to differentiate the two cards. The BoardID switch gives each card a unique identifier so that the cards can be recognized as different cards by software. There is no need to open the chassis.
