Applications demanding analog output nodes, require a reasonable, cost effective solution one can rely on. Even harshest of environments aren’t an issue. Having this in mind the perfect solution is Kontron’s CP372 analog out.

Act Reasonable

Selecting between two options of channel numbers, as well as four different voltage ranges, and two different input current ranges, consequently create a very flexible solution.

Stay Reliable

Many applications in the industrial automation area have to work under toughest conditions (-40°C up to +85°C), and require nevertheless preciseness. A resolution of 12 bit, combined with a basic accuracy of +/- 1 LSB fulfi lls this task.

An absolute reliable product is indispensable nowadays. Therefore the CP372 features an effi cient output protection. The isolation to the system additionally secures the board as well as an exact power on reset (0V). No matter which operating system is used (Windows® 2000/ XP , Windows® XP embedded, VxWorks® or Linux®), the CP372 grants satisfaction.
