The CompactPCI 32 digital I/O board CPCI-1500 has 16 digital inputs, 24 V, and 16 digital outputs, 24 V. 14 inputs are interruptible. The board is especially suited for applications like I/O control, ON/OFF monitoring of motors, lights, etc. in the harsh industrial environment. 64-bit drivers for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP and Linux as well as programming samples are included, real-time drivers for Windows and Linux are available on request.
