14-bit 8 Channel Analog Output Board auto detected by Windows


This item has been phased out and replaced with PIO-DA8U

The PIO-DA16, PIO-DA8 and PIO-DA4 are multi-channel D/A boards for the PCI bus for PCs. The PIO-DA16/8/4 offers 16/8/4 channels of double-buffered analog output. The output range may be configured in different range: ±10V, ±5V, 0 ~ 10V and 0 ~ 5V voltage output or 4 ~ 20mA, 0 ~ 20mA current loop sinking.

The innovative design improves several drawbacks of conventional D/A boards.

  • Jumperless and without trim-pot.
  • The calibration is performed under software control
    • eliminating manual trim-pot adjustments.
    • The calibration data is stored in EEPROM.
    • Each channel can be selected as voltage or current output.
    • High channel count output can be implemented in half size.
    • PCI bus
    • Channels: 16/8/4
    • 14-bit Analog Output
    • Unipolar or bipolar outputs available from each converter v Output type:
      (Unipolar or bipolar) and output range
    • ( 0 ~ 5V, ±5V, 0 ~ 10V, ±10V) can be software programmable
    • 4~20mA or 0~20mA current sink to ground for each converter
    • Two pacer timer interrupt source
    • Double-buffered D/A latches
    • Software calibration
    • 16 channels DI, 16 channels DO
    • SMD, short card.
    • One D-Sub connector, two 20-pin flat cable connectors
    • Connects directly to DB-16P, DB-16R, DB-24C, DB-24PR and DB-24POR
