The CyPDISO 16P is a low-cost, PCI-bus, 16-channel isolated input board with 16 relay outputs. It allows you to directly connect your PC to AC or DC voltage sources. Isolation voltage is a minimum of 500 V channel-to-channel and channel-to-ground.
CyPDISO 16P is useful for applications where high voltages need to be sensed or controlled. The 16 outputs are dry-contact Form C (SPDT) electromechanical relays. They are controlled by writing to two 8-bit ports. The state of the relays can be determined by reading the same two ports.
There are 16 individual optically isolated (500 V) inputs that can be read back as two 8-bit bytes. The inputs are not polarity sensitive and can be driven by either AC (50~100 Hz) or DC. Each input has a software-enabled low-pass filter with a time constant of 5 ms (200 Hz).
CyPDISO 16P is compatible with the optional Universal Library software package.
