Walpole, MA (August 14, 2014) — United Electronic Industries (UEI) is proud to announce the release of the DNx-DIO-449, 48 channel, digital input board. The board is compatible with all of UEI’s popular Cube, RACKtangle and FlatRACK chassis. What sets this board apart from others on the market is its flexibility to be used in widely varying applications.
- Input range from 3.3 V to 150 V
- Monitors both AC and DC inputs
- Monitors contact closures without any external components
- Fully programmable logic high/low levels and hysteresis
- Automatic change-of-state detection with 200 µS resolution time stamps
- Diagnostics include built-in A/D for analog voltage measurement of each input
- Internal signal injection for BIT (Built-In-self-Test)
- Self-test/BIT operates without disconnecting field wiring
- Programmable debounce intervals for contact monitoring
Software included with the DNx-DIO-449 provides a comprehensive yet easy to use API that supports all popular Windows programming languages. UEI also provides factory written drivers for all popular non-Windows operating systems including Linux, QNX, VxWorks, RTX, InTime, and more. Finally, the UEIDAQ Framework supplies complete support for those creating applications in data acquisition software packages such as LabVIEW, MATLAB/Simulink or any application which supports ActiveX or OPC servers.
About the “Cube”
UEI’s powerful “Cube” architecture is a compact (4 x 4 x 4″ or 4 x 4 x 5.8″) Ethernet based I/O platform. It may be deployed in four different configurations. These are: 1) Ethernet I/O systems slaved to a host PC, 2) Stand alone Data Logger/Recorder, 3) Linux-based Programmable Automation Controller (PAC), or 4) Modbus TCP based I/O slave. Each Cube consists of a core module (that holds the processor and network interface) along with three or six open I/O slots. Users select the deployment option that meets their requirements. Users then match the Cube’s I/O configuration to their application by selecting the appropriate boards. With over 25 I/O boards available, there’s sure to be a configuration to meet almost any application requirement. The six-slot Cube provides up to 150 analog inputs, 192 analog outputs, 288 digital I/O, 48 counter or quadrature channels, 72 ARINC-429 channels, 24 Serial or CAN-bus ports, or 12 1553 channels. A full description of the “Cube” is available at www.ueidaq.com.
About the (12-slot) RACKtangle and (6-slot) HalfRACK
UEI’s popular rack-mounted chassis provide convenient, front-loading, easily-serviced, multi-slot, 3U enclosures for the complete range of UEI I/O modules. Both products provide two Gigabit (1000/100/10 Base-T) Ethernet ports with independent IP addresses that can be used either for communication or diagnostic purposes. Passive backplanes with no active electronic components ensure an almost unlimited MTBF for both models, and since all active components are mounted on easily replaceable I/O modules, an extremely short MTTR (mean time to recovery) can be achieved. A 12-slot RACKtangle can handle up to: 300 analog inputs, 384 analog outputs, 576 digital I/O, 96 counter or quadrature channels, 154 ARINC-429 channels, 48, serial or CAN-bus ports, or 24 MIL-STD-1553 communication bus ports. A 6-slot HalfRACK handles half as many. Visit www.ueidaq.com for a full description.
