Contec AI-1204Z-PCI - 4 Channel 12-bit 10MSPS Analog Input Board for PCI

4 12-Bit Analog Inputs, 8 Digital I/O Channels

Introduction

Contec's AI-1204Z-PCI is a PCI bus four port analog input card supporting 10MSPS sampling (simultaneous sampling of four channels at a same time). The large (32M Word) memory buffer and bus master transfer function allow continuous data acquisition to be performed at high speed for a long period. Sampling can be started and stopped by software, conversion data comparison (level comparison, in-range comparison, out-of-range comparison), external trigger, or event controller output. The board has a full driver library (API-PAC(W32)), which supports Visual C# .Net, Visual Basic .Net, Visual C++. Also, the product supports no-programing data collection with a data logger soft (C-LOGGER), and supports MATLAB and LabVIEW with plug in of an exclusive library (free download).

Features

  • The maximum conversion speed is 10MSPS (100nsec) and four channels can be sampled simultaneously. The range for each channel can be set independently by software to match the level of the input signal source(Input range : ±10V, ±5V, ±2.5V, ±1.25V or 0 - +10V, 0 - +5V, 0 - +2.5V). Also features digital inputs and outputs (four LVTTL level input and output ports respectively and requires the optional DT-E3 cable).
  • Sampling can be setup to be started and stopped by software, conversion data comparison, external trigger, or event controller output. Control of sampling start and stop is completely independent and a separate setting is provided for each. It is also possible to specify that sampling stop after a specified number of samples.
  • The conversion data comparison function can perform level, in-range, and out-of-range comparisons on the conversion data.
  • A synchronization control connector is provided for synchronized control of up to 16 boards. This means the number of channels can be increased simply by adding boards. It is also easy to synchronize operation with other CONTEC boards that have a synchronization control connector.
  • The large (32M Word) memory buffer and bus master transfer function allow continuous data acquisition to be performed at high speed for a long period. The bus master transfer function allows large volumes of data to be transferred between the board and PC without loading the CPU.
  • This makes it easy to connect to other devices with a BNC connector.
