Our CYDAS 1000 series PCI boards offer a good balance between speed, channel count, and cost. With the right signal conditioning, they quickly and accurately collect your measurements of temperature, strain, voltage, and other industrial parameters. All of the CYDAS 1000 PCI boards are completely plug-and-play. Completely software driven, there are no switches, jumpers, or potentiometers to set.
Each board in our CYDAS 1000 family provides 16 single-ended or 8 differential inputs. To simplfy programming and help ensure maximum data throughput, an on-board FIFO buffer can hold up to 512 samples. The FIFO buffer simplifies program timing under Windows®, allowing data to be transfered to your PC's memory without the possibilty of missed samples.
The CYDAS 1202DAP provides two analog outputs (D/A channels), with 12-bit accuracy. It has a typical settling time of 4 microseconds which should theoretically produce throughputs up to 200kHz. The board has software-selectable output ranges of 0-10VDC, 0-5VDC, +/-10VDC, and +/-5VDC. Ranges are separately selectable for each output channel, with outputs that are accurate to up to +/-1 LSB. Each output can drive loads up to +/-5mA, and is protected against short circuits. Outputs are cleared to 0 volts on power-up or reset.
All the boards provide 24 bits of digital I/O. Configured as two 8-bit ports and two 4-bit I/O ports, each of these ports can be set independently as input or output via software.
