January 2009: Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) is please to announce the release of United Electronic Industries’ (UEI) (Walpole, MA) DNR-6-1G 6-slot, portable, Ethernet I/O chassis. Developed in response to customer requests for a smaller version of the popular DNR-12-1G RACKtangle™ 12-slot front-access 3U chassis, the DNR-6-1G offers all the features of the 12-slot model in a half-rack-width configuration.
As the DNR-6-1G is electrically compatible with the ’Cube’ form factors all of the I/O boards available in the cube form factor are also available for the DNR-6-1G. With over 30 I/O modules available there will be a configuration ideally suited for almost any application requirement. The HalfRACK’s six I/O slots provide up to: 150 analogue inputs, 192 analogue outputs, 288 digital I/O, 48 counter or quadrature channels, 72 ARINC-429 channels and/or 24 Serial or CAN-bus ports. A full description of the DNR-6-1G product line is available at http://directory.adeptscience.co.uk/productid/UEI-DNR-6-1G/1/UEI-DNR-6-1G.html
Software for the DNR-6-1G is provided in the UEIDAQ Framework. The Framework provides a comprehensive, easy to use API that supports all popular programming and operating systems such as Windows, Vista, Linux and most real-time operating systems (e.g., QNX, RTX, RT Linux). In addition, the board is fully supported by LabVIEW, MATLAB/Simulink, DASYLab or any application that supports ActiveX, OPC or Modbus TCP control.
“The HalfRACK is a prime example of UEI’s long-time policy of listening to the voice of the customer”, says UEI President Shaun Miller. “When we introduced the 12-slot RACKtangle product last year customer response was overwhelmingly positive but we soon found that many users who wanted the performance features of the 12-slot unit really needed a package with a smaller footprint. That’s why we are now introducing the 6-slot DNR-6-1G. We always respond to what users tell us they need.”
The UEI product range is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK and Ireland.
