The QUANCOM® ETHOPTO32IO board is equipped with 32 opto inputs and 32 opto outputs and is designed for industrial purposes.Optocouplers protect the inputs up to 500 Volts
. Your personal computer is protected against damage in case of overvoltage by galvanic isolation. These optocouplers are designed as alternating current optocouplers which means that you can choose the polarity of input signals optionally . You can also accommodate the input voltage range individually. If you want to have an input range from 5V to 12V feel free to tell us in your order. The default input range is 12V to 30V.Change of input states
The 32 inputs are equipped with input flip-flops which detect quick input state changes or remove switch bounce. It is also possible to generate an interruption if an input changes. Output protection
The board has a configurable onboard timeout control which switches the outputs in case of a software hanging off. You can also select a time period. (i.e. 16s) Through this function you can switch off connected terminals like motors or hot plates to avoid uncontrolled working processes.Software library
|The ETHOPTO32IO example shows the programming with Visual Basic|
You need no knowledge in driver development. We implemented a command set which is usable for all operating systems. An application that controls the ETHOPTO32IO, and which is generated for Windows 98 can be used directly on a Windows XP PC.
With QLIB it is easy to create applications with Visual-Studio .NET, Visual-Basic, Borland Delphi or other modern compilers. Even an interface to MS Excel, MS Access or Sun Java is available. We included VB ETHOPTOREL32 examples which show how to program and test the card and it also includes the source code. This is a good starting point for your own applications.
ETHOPTO32IO is also available as ETHOPTOREL32
