APCIe-1532 – DAQ PCIe Card – Digital Inputs/Outputs

The PCI-Express 32 digital I/O card APCIe-1532 / APCIe-1532-12 V has 32 digital inputs and outputs. The card is available as 24 V or 12 V version. It is especially suited for the industrial I/O control, for example for signal switching, ON/OFF monitoring of motors, lights, etc., as interface to electromechanical relays, for automated test devices or as interface to machines in the harsh industrial environment.





  • 16 optically isolated inputs, 24 V (APCIe-1532) or 12 V (APCIe-1532-12V) incl. 15 interruptible inputs
  • Channel 0 can be used as a 16-bit counter input (up to 100 kHz)
  • Reverse voltage protection
  • All inputs are filtered


  • 16 optically isolated outputs, 11 to 36 V
  • Output current per channel 500 mA
  • Total current: 3 A typ. (fused through PTC resistor)
  • Watchdog for resetting the outputs to”0“
  • At Power-On, reset of the outputs to “0”
  • Current limit: ~ 1.5 A per 8 channels (through PTC)
  • Short-circuit current per output ~1.5 A typ.
  • Self-resetting fuse (electronic fuse)
  • Overtemperature and overvoltage protection
  • 24 V power outputs with protection diodes and filters
  • External 24 V voltage supply screened and filtered
  • Shutdown logic, when the external supply voltage drops below 7 V

Timer / Counter

  • 2 timers (12-bit resolution)
  • 1 timer can be used as watchdog
  • 1 counter (APCIe-1502: 2 counters)

Safety features

  • Optical isolation 1000 V
  • Creeping distance IEC 61010-1
  • Separate ground line for inputs and outputs
  • Protection against fast transients (burst), overvoltage, electrostatic discharge and high-frequency EMI


  • Industrial I/O control
  • PLC coupling
  • Reading of encoder values for process control
  • Signal switching
  • Interface to electromechanical relays
  • ON/OFF monitoring of motors, lights…
