Multi-channel electromechanical relay boards for switching and digital control
23 September 2010
New to the Adept Scientific data acquisition product range are two 12-channel, electromechanical relay boards from United Electronic Industries (UEI), which can be used with the UEI Cube and RACKtangle IO series respectively.
The DIO-452/462 boards are designed for use in a wide variety of switching and digital control applications. Each channel is configured as a standard Form C (SPDT) relay and switches voltages up to 100Vdc or 150Vac. Each channel is rated for continuous operation at 2A at 30Vdc and 0.75A at 125Vac with an output voltage of less than 200mV.
All relays default to ‘off’ on power-up/reset; switching rates up to 125Hz are supported, and each relay is protected by an 2A slow-blow fuse.
All connections are made through a convenient 37-pin D connector ensuring no problems obtaining mating cables or connectors. Users may also connect the DNx-DIO-452/462 boards to UEI’s DNA-STP-37 screw terminal panel via the DNA-CBL-37S cables. The cables are fully shielded and are available in 1, 3, 10 and 20 foot lengths.
The DNx-DIO-452/462 series includes software drivers supporting all popular operating systems including: Windows, Linux, QNX, VXWorks, RTX and other popular Real-Time Operating Systems. Windows users may take advantage of the powerful UEIDAQ Framework which provides a simple and complete software interface to all popular Windows programming languages and data acquisition and control applications (eg LabVIEW, DASYLab, MATLAB).
