Press Release Summary:
Model 104-AIM-32A Kit, consisting of signal conditioning mux and A/D board pair, offers 32 single-ended or 16 differential inputs with flexible gain for use with thermocouples, RTDs, load cells and strain gages, and 4-20mA inputs with fault detection. All sensor signals are conditioned, amplified, and calibrated, then digitized by 12-bit, 8-input A/D board. Up to 8 signal conditioning boards can be stacked together to realize 256 inputs, multiplexed into 8 channels of board.
Original Press Release:
Versatile New PC/104 High-Density Analog Signal Conditioner Provides 32 Channels and up to 256 Inputs
SAN DIEGO, CA-August 18, 2003-ACCES I/O Products announces the immediate release of its newest PC/104 board solution for data acquisition, test and measurement. The high-density Model 104-AIM-32A Kit provides 32 single-ended or 16 differential inputs with flexible gain for use with factory configured options such as conditioning for Thermocouples, RTDs, Bridge type load cells and strain gages, and 4-20mA inputs with fault detection. At under $400, the 104-AIM-32A Kit (signal conditioning mux & A/D board pair) features an excellent price/performance value for temperature control and monitoring, power system data acquisition, environmental monitoring of pH, humidity, pressure, flow and other low-level signal applications.
All sensor signals are conditioned, amplified and calibrated then digitized by an included 12-bit, 8-input A/D Board. Alternately, the 104-AIM-32A can be paired with either a 12-bit or 16-bit I/0 board for applications where analog outputs or digital I/O are also needed. Up to eight signal conditioning boards can be stacked together to realize 256 inputs, multiplexed into the eight channels of the A/D board. Multiple calibration constants can be stored onboard for use in widely varying temperature environments.
The 104-AIM-32A standard board set features:
o Software programmable channel by channel input range/gain
o 6 standard analog input ranges
o Filtered, extremely quiet front end populated with low-noise components
o Complete system calibration with easy-to-use utility software
o Reference junction sensor for thermocouple inputs on optional removable screw terminal block
o 8-input, 12-Bit 100KHz analog-to-digital board and cable
o Power requirement: +5V @ 240mA, typical with DC/DC converter
o Complete system, just add a CPU
o Easy to network on 10/100 Base-T Ethernet
o Extended operating temperature range: -40C to +85C
An included free software development kit (SDK) supports analog-to-digital converstions, calibration and digital functions with sample programs and source code in "C" and Pascal for DOS. A graphical setup program makes installation easy. Linux support consists of "C" samples for register-level programming. Full Windows support, samples and drivers are provided for register-level access to the board's features. Networking examples are also provided.
