The CompactPCI Serial 64 digital I/O board CPCIs-1564 has 32 digital inputs, 24 V, and 32 digital outputs, 24 V. 16 inputs are interruptible. The channels 0-2 can be used as 32-bit counter inputs (up to 500 kHz). The board is meant for the industrial I/O board, thus all inputs are filtered and protected against reverse voltage. The inputs and outputs are optically isolated up to 1000 V and protected against fast transients, overvoltage, electrostatic discharge and high-frequency EMI. The board has an extended temperature range from -40 °C up to +85 °C. Signed 64-bit drivers, 32 bit drivers for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP, real-time Linux drivers as well as programming samples are included.
