APCI-1710 – DAQ PCI Card – Counting Inputs

The PCI multifunction counter card APCI-1710 is equipped with 4 programmable function modules, that can individually configured for each channel with one of the available functions: incremental counter, SSI synchronous serial interface, counter/timer, pulse acquisition, frequency/pulse width/period duration/velocity measurement, PWM, digital inputs and outputs, … The card is suited for applications like event counting, position acquisition, motion control, batch counting etc. in the harsh industrial environment.



The board APCI-1710 is a fast multifunction and multichannel counter board for the PCI bus. The strengths of this board are its wide range of applications and high precision and reliability for rough industrial applications. With this board you can realise many different applications on the same hardware base. The board is supplied with a pool of functions which provides the user with maximum efficiency yet minimum space and parts requirement. The functions are individually configured for each channel through the supplied software. The flexible programming facilities on this board allow many different user applications to be quickly and easily developed and reconfigured as further requirements arise. Thanks to the FPGA board structure, further counting applications can be realised through software adaptation. Contact us!
