Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group introduces the PCIE-1816 and PCIE-1816H data acquisition (DAQ) cards for the PCI Express (PCIe) bus. The speed and flexibility of PCIe facilitates increased data transfer rates with higher resolutions using cost effective hardware. The PCIE-1816 supporting one mega-samples per second (1 MS/s) and the PCIE-1816H supporting five MS/s offer higher analog input rates with 16 bit resolution and corresponding smoother waveform analog outputs.
These new DAQ cards offer all of the features expected from a versatile multifunction card including; 16 single-ended or eight differential analog inputs, two analog outputs, 24 digitals configurable as inputs or outputs, two counter/timers, onboard and external clocking, onboard FIFO, and the free DAQNavi configuration and utilities software.
When it is necessary to add a waveform generator to a test stand used for analyzing analog inputs, the PCIE-1816 and PCIE-1816H cost effectively meet the need with two analog output channels with 16 bit resolution configurable to generate waveforms using the DAQNavi software which may also be used to display and analyze the waveform of the analog inputs and datalog the sample for offline analysis.
The PCIE-1816 and 1816H are the two newest cards in Advantech’s PCIe family. They now join the PCIE-1810 (800 KS/s, 12-bit, 16-channel), PCIE- 1751 (48-channel digital I/O and 3-channel counter), PCIE-1753 (96-channel digital I/O), PCIE-1752 (64-channel isolated digital output), PCIE-1754 (64-channel isolated digital input), PCIE-1756 (64-channel digital I/O), PCIE-1730 (32-channel TTL and 32-channel isolated digital I/O), and PCIE-1760 (eight-channel relay and eight-channel isolated digital input).
