The CompactPCI multifunction counter board CPCI-1710 is a fast multifunction and multi-channel counter board for use in the harsh industrial environment.
It is equipped with 4 programmable function modules. The following functions can be selected individually for each function module: Incremental counter, SSI synchronous serial interfaces, counter/timer, pulse acquisition, frequency , pulse width , period duration, velocity measurement, PWM, digital inputs and outputs, etc. The board is suitable for applications such as event counting, position acquisition, motion control, batch counting, … 64-bit drivers for Windows and Linux as well as programming samples are included, real-time drivers for Windows and Linux are available on request.

The board CPCI-1710 is a fast multifunction and multichannel counter board for the CompactPCI bus. The strengths of this board are its wide range of applications and high precision, speed and reliability for though 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 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 or reconfigured as further requirements arise. Thanks to the FPGA board structure, further counting applications can be realised through software adaptation. Contact us!
