Press Release Summary:
With support for 3.3 and 5 V Universal PC bus, PCI-7260 has 8 channels, each of which switches 5 A currents at 250 Vac or 30 Vdc. It also offers 8 isolated digital input channels with debouncing circuits. Along with emergency shutdown function, product features front panel connector that can carry high currents and facilitates wiring. Trace space, trace width, and copper thickness are designed to follow EN61010-1 safety standards to carry high currents over PCB.
Original Press Release:
An Advanced High-Power Relay Output Card for Your Automation and Machine Control Applications
Irvine, CA (October 26, 2005) - ADLINK Technology Inc. announced a new high-power relay output card, the PCI-7260. As the world's first true high-power relay output card for automation and machine control, the PCI-7260 comes with very impressive features. Each of its eight channels switches 5A currents at 250VAC or 30VDC. It has a front panel connector allowing for both carrying high currents and easy wiring. The PCI-7260 also offers eight isolated digital input channels with debouncing circuits to eliminate signal interference.
The PCI-7260 is equipped with safety considerations. Trace space, trace width and copper thickness were carefully designed following the EN61010-1 safety standards to carry high currents over a PCB. A high-power pluggable connector replaced the traditional D-Sub connector to support an 8A-rated current. Further, the PCI-7260 has an emergency shutdown function to switch all relays to a safety mode. This is accomplished by sending a digital signal to the EMG_SHDN input from the front panel.
The PCI-7260 supports a 3.3V and 5V Universal PC bus and runs Windows 98/NT/XP and Linux operating systems. It offers advanced features including high-switching capacity and safety making the PCI-7260 the ideal choice for industrial automation and machine control applications.
Pricing & Availability
The PCI-7260 is competitively priced starting at $340 and is available with OEM discounts in volume.
