Overview / Features

AI-1216I2-PCI is a PCI-compliant interface card that converts analog input signals to digital equivalents (performing analog-to-digital conversion). AI-1216I2-PCI can perform A-D conversion at a conversion speed of 20μsec per channel and a resolution of 12-bit. Using the bundled driver library [API-PAC(W32)], you can create Windows application software for this board in your favorite programming language supporting Win32 API functions, such as Visual Basic or Visual C++.

  • Bus-isolation by optocoupler and digital isolator
    • PC and external I/O circuit are isolated from each other by optocoupler and digital isolator, offering good noise immunity.
  • Sixteen single-ended channels or eight differential channels (Analog input function)
    • Either card allows the single-ended or differential input mode to be selected with on-board jumpers. The order of channels subject to signal conversion can be preset in the dedicated register.
  • On-board buffer memory (Analog input function)
    • The card has buffer memory available as a FIFO or ring buffer to hold 256 kilobytes of data. This enables sampling to be executed in the background independently of the processing power of the PC.
  • Assorted sampling control functions (Analog input function)
    • The card can control the starting and stopping of sampling not only with software commands but also by detecting analog signal strength or digital signals. The card offers a choice of sampling clocks selectable to determine the sampling speed: the internal sampling clock using the on-board clock generator and the external sampling clock using the digital signal input from an external device.
  • Digital input / output function
    • The card has optocoupler isolation open-collector output (sink type) digital output 4 channels, optocoupler isolation input (corresponding to sink output) digital input 4 channels and can monitor, control the external device.
  • Abundant optional units
    • Optional units are available for enhancements. Using optional units enhances card functions and facilitates connections. For more details on the options, please refer to this chapter “Cable & Connector” or “Accessories (Option)”.
