PCI-PIO - Digital instrumentation and control all-in-one

Behind the highly integrated design of the PCI-PIO lies a multifunctional concept. With up to three counters or incremental encoders being connected to any inputs of the 32 digital I/O, you have all options in the range of digital applications.

The short latency of the PCI interface makes the PCI-PIO especially attractive for controlling tasks. As a quadrature decoder card, it is extremely versatile and can be used e.g. for the acquisition of counting pulses, the determination of position, or for distance and angular measurements.

MAL-ISO - Reliably measuring

How interferences can be eliminated from a measuring signal by using isolation amplifiers (here: MAL-ISO10), has successfully been proved by the Technical University Munich (see right picture).

With the low-priced miniature amplifiers of the MAL-ISO series, signals can be recorded electrically isolated allowing not just reliable statements about a measurement but also protecting PC and measurement system against high potentials.

--> MAL-ISO50: ±50V --> ideal for automotive applications!
--> MAL-ISO10: ±10V
--> MAL-ISO50: ±5V
--> MAL-ISO1: ±1V or ±20mA --> for voltage or current
