INTERWORLD Electronics has announced the release of PCI versions of popular digital and relay boards from ICS Advent

The PCI-161SO is a half card PCI solution for digital monitoring where inputs must be isolated.

The PCI 32 Reed Relay outputs (models PC1-32REL and PCI-32REL-B) offer alternative cabling.

The new digital and relay boards are additions to the ICS Advent family of digital isolated and relay boards.

These boards are PCI board solutions for digital controls where on-board relays are required in test equipment, instrumentation, process control, satellite/microwave network control, audio switching and analog multiplexing.

Both boards feature a plug-n-play auto selection where no address switches are required.

The PCI-16ISO isolated digital inputs board is the PCI version of the ISA 161SO. It is both pin-out and software equivalent to the input half of the PCI-DIO32 digital relay cards.

The PCI-32REL is for customers who prefer two PCI-16 REL boards in one slot. The PCI-32REL-B provides existing customers of the ICS Advent's popular 32REL-B ISA board with a PCI version including an exact connector pin-out or for those wanting A and B side of the relays on separate connectors.

The PCI 16 isolated digital inputs board has16 optically isolated AC or DC inputs. Socketed resistor packs can be changed to vary isolated input range of up to 24 volts, with the board default being within the 2.8-12 VAC/DC range.

The PCI-16ISO offers the same features and pin-out as the ISA 16ISO with the same DB-37 female connector for all 16 inputs. Also with a PCI bus, no address switch is required. The board has two 8-bit ports and takes up only one half PCI slot. Power and ground is provided on the connector.

PCI-16ISO is PCI 2.1 compliant (seen past bridge). The board supports DOS and Windows 98/ME/NT/2000.

The PCI-32REL and PCI-32REL-B are the same short 6.60-inch PCI board solution. They are more reliable compared to electro-mechanical relays in applications of high switch count.

The PCI-32REL comes with shielded dual breakout cable to two DB37 male connectors that each has the same pin-outs as the PCI-16REL allowing users double the number of relays while taking up only a single PCI slot.

The PCI-32REL-B comes with a different shielded dual breakout cable to two DB37 female connectors that each has the same pin-outs as the ISA 32REL-B.

This option has the A-side of the relays on one DB37 connector and the B-side of the relays on the second DB37. This allows customers to buy only a single termination board if the B-side is not used in the application.

This also allows a smooth upgrade using the same cabling for those changing from the ISA 32REL-B to the PCI bus.

The PCI 32 reed relay output features 32 channels with SPST relays. It has a life expectancy of 200M operations (low load) or 100M operations (max load).

Its maximum switching power is 10VA, resistive load. The PCI 32 has a maximum speed of 600Hz. It withstands 20G shock and vibration. Both boards support DOS, Windows 98/ME/NT/2000 for full I/O support. Interworld Electronics 03 9563 5011.
