New to the Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) DAQ product range are United Electronic Industries’ (UEI) (Walpole, MA) DNA/DNR-DIO-452/462. The 12-channel, electromechanical relay boards are designed for use with UEI’s ‘Cube’ and RACKtangle I/O series respectively.
The DIO-452/462 boards are designed for use in a wide variety of switching and digital control applications. Each channel is configured as a standard Form C (SPDT) relay and switches voltages up to 100 VDC or 150 VAC. Each channel is rated for continuous operation at 2 Amps at 30 VDC and 0.75 Amp at 125 VAC with an output voltage of less than 200 mV (<200 mOhm).
All relays default to ‘off’ on power-up/reset; switching rates up to 125 Hz are supported. Each relay is protected by an on-board 2 Amp slow-blow fuse.
All connections are made through a convenient 37-pin D connector ensuring no problems obtaining mating cables or connectors. Users may also connect the DNx-DIO-452/462 boards to UEI’s popular DNA-STP-37 screw terminal panel via the DNA-CBL-37S cables. The cables are fully shielded and are available in 1, 3, 10 and 20 foot lengths.
The DNx-DIO-452/462 series includes software drivers supporting all popular operating systems including: Windows, Linux, QNX, VXWorks, RTX and other popular Real-Time Operating Systems. Windows users may take advantage of the powerful UEIDAQ Framework which provides a simple and complete software interface to all popular Windows programming languages and data acquisition and control applications (eg LabVIEW, DASYLab, MATLAB).
