Five high performance Data Acquisition Boards.

Unmatched Signal Conditioning and Channel Expansion
Options Address the Special Needs of Industrial Monitoring
and Test Applications

"Our new CompactPCl boards with their signal conditioning options
provide robust solutions for industrial applications where isolation,
rack-mounting, easy channel expansion, and high-performance are
pre-requisites," said Ron Chapek, lOtech Product Manager.

"Other CompactPCl suppliers have targeted high-end applications
in telecommunications and military/aerospace, but we have focused
on providing affordable, easy-touse, and easy-to-maintain solutions
for taking basic temperature, pressure and other common
measurements."

Scensys Ltd. announce the release of the new IOtech DaqBoard/2000c
series a family of CompactPCl boards and accessories. These
multi-function I/O boards, with their isolated signal conditioning options,
are designed to meet the needs of OEMs and end-users with industrial
monitoring and test applications.

The DaqBoard/2000c family is composed of six data acquisition
boards, with different analogue and digital I/O combinations, that
can be configured individually or in any combination of up to 8
boards per CompactPCl chassis. Consequently, I/O can be
precisely and economically matched with application requirements.

If additional channel expansion is required, lOtech's unique,
high-speed addressing scheme supports analogue input expansions
of up to 256 channels with scan rates (per scan group) of up to
5 ps/channel. Unlike other PC plug-in based solutions, there is no
timing penalty for scanning expansion channels versus embedded
channels.

On-board digital I/O is also expandable up to 208 lines. In total, up
to 470 channels of analogue and digital I/O can be accessed from
a single (multi-function) DaqBoard/2000c board using a single
high-density connector and cable. For higher channel count
applications multi-board configurations support channel expansion
to over 1000 I/O.

Common Board Features
Unique features available from lOtech's DaqBoard/2000c series
provide unique benefits for industrial monitoring and test applications:

* Sixteen, 16-bit analog inputs (for highly accurate measurements
(/2000, 2001, /2005)

* Independent configuration of gain and polarity on a per channel
basis as well as channel sequence allowing one board to address
a wider range of signal types

* 4 high-speed counter/pulse inputs capable of reading frequencies
up to 10MHz for interfacing to a wide variety of industrial devices)

* 2 timer/pulse outputs for generating pulses up to 1 MHz

* Two (/2001) or four, 16-bit analog outputs that can be programmed
to asynchronously output control signal voltages (/2001, /2003, /2004)

* Synchronous scanning of all analog, digital, and counter channels
meets the needs for demanding applications where I/O must be
updated concurrently at high rates

* Bus-mastering (DMA) for continuous, high-speed data streaming
without CPU intervention thus freeing the PC to perform background
tasks including data analysis

* Over 30 signal conditioning options for measuring temperature,
pressure, strain, position and more with and without isolation; panel
mountable with DIN-rail and 19" rack mount options

* On-board power for optional signal conditioning eliminating the
added cost and complexity of an external supply

* 100% digital calibration reduces maintenance time, saves cost,
and improves data integrity

* Plug-and-play software simplifies system configuration and
reduces system start-up time

* Free API library (Windows® 95/98/2000/ME/NT) for Visual Basic®,
C++ and DelphiTM

* Free substitution Vls that make DaqBoard/2000c boards compatible
with application programs based on NIDAQ-based VIs

* Optional DaqView2000 for immediate board setup, data acquisition,
and data display without the need for programming

* Optional DaqViewXL for dynamically acquiring data into an active
Microsoft ® Excel spreadsheet without programming

* Drivers for popular third-party software environments including
DASYLab®, LABView®, and TestPoint® as well as compatible file
formats linking data with post-acquisition analysis and display
packages including DIAdem® and MATLAB.
