Acromag Releases Rugged 8-Channel Isolated Analogue Output Modules with Cable-Free Mini PCIe Interface
These modules offer cost savings with built-in isolation to prevent ground loops and noise.
Acromag has recently announced the continued expansion of their AcroPack® Series with the AP226 and AP236 . These modules provide 8-Channel Analogue Output Modules with Cable Free Mini PCIe Interface with built-in isolated voltage output signals to drive up to eight devices. Designed for COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) these modules deliver high-density, high-reliability, and high-performance at a low cost. They support six independent software selectable output ranges plus capabilities to monitor the status of each output along with the same functionality and memory map of existing Industry Pack (IP) modules.
AcroPack modules improve on the mini PCIe form factor by adding a down-facing connector that securely routes I/O signals through the host carrier card without any extra cabling. Carrier cards are available in PCIe, VPX, XMC and other formats. These carriers provide direct access to the field I/O signals through front-panel CHAMP connectors or the rear backplane. At only 30 x 70mm per module, up to four AcroPacks can plug into a single carrier card in any I/O combination.
More than 25 AcroPack modules are now offered for a wide variety of analogue I/O, digital I/O, communication, and FPGA computing functions. Avionics, fieldbus, and other functions are coming soon.
For easy integration of the AcroPack modules with real-time software application programs, Acromag offers C libraries for Windows®, Linux® and VxWorks® systems. These libraries provide generic routines (source code included) to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. Demonstration programs enable the developer to quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the application program. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and debugging.
Ideal for scientific development labs, military and aerospace applications, the defence industry and automation applications.
The continued expansion is critical to providing the capabilities that customers require. Acromag are committed to providing them with the best solutions possible.
