Example usage of DIN rail mounting kit
Contec’s CPI Series HAT-size cards, which expand HAT specifications with multi-stage connectivity for general-purpose usability, have been available since April 2021.
In addition to the seven HAT-size cards currently in the CPI Series, these three new models will further expand the range of measurement control applications for systems with a varying number of I/O points and requiring the ability to handle a wide variety of signals.
In addition to easy DIN rail mounting, the new DIN rail mounting kit also enables various other mounting methods, including wall and desktop installation.
Under the motto of “Bringing the ease of PCs to FA,” Contec has been both a pioneer and industry leader in PC-based measurement control systems since the introduction of the first personal computers. Contec is reaffirming this dedication with the CPI Series of Raspberry Pi HAT-size cards.
The CPI Series includes a push-type terminal block for convenient, simple connection and disconnection of wired HATs without the need for tools or crimping terminals.
Contec has expanded HAT specifications to include address ID configurability, making it possible to connect up to eight stacked cards.
Linux driver (API-TOOL for Linux) can be downloaded for free from the company’s website along with sample Python and GCC programs, allowing users to begin programming right away.
Take advantage of API compatibility with Contec PCI Express, PCI, USB, and Ethernet-type measurement control devices. Development assets can be reused across multiple platforms.
