North Atlantic releases multifunction cPCI card with D/S converters and Gigabit Ethernet
North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is offering a five-module, single-slot CompactPCI (cPCI) card that can eliminate the complexity and size constraints of multiple, independent, single-function cards.
North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is offering a five-module, single-slot CompactPCI (cPCI) card that can eliminate the complexity and size constraints of multiple, independent, single-function cards. The 78CS2 cPCI card can accommodate independent function modules, and can be configured with NAI’s D/S converters. The 78CS2 also incorporates a Gigabit Ethernet interface to transfer data to and from the board without using the backplane bus. This Ethernet port allows the board to be used as a stand-alone remote sensor interface, without the need for a separate computer board. Other modules for the card includes D/LVDT (two channels), S/D (four channels), LVDT/D (four channels), A/D (10 channels), D/A (10 channels), AC synchro reference generator, function generator (four channels), discrete I/O (16 channels), TTL I/O (16 channels), transceiver I/O (11 channels), and RTD (six channels). The multifunction design of the 78CS2 provides extensive diagnostics and is available in commercial temperature range and severe-environment industrial temperature range versions. For increased flexibility, each of the functions of the 78CS2 is programmable at the channel level. The 78CS2 is available with operating temperature ranges of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, and 0 C to 70 C. Conduction-cooled versions with wedgelocks are also available.
