SAN DIEGO, Calif., May 22, 2000 - ICS Advent, the premier provider of mission-critical applied computing solutions, has introduced a new analog-to-digital (A/D) converter card, Model PCI-AI/1216. This new multifunction, high-speed card provides customers with a cost efficient way to increase their data acquisition capabilities as they monitor temperature, movement and other conditions that vary continuously.
The Model PCI-AI/1216 converter card is an addition to the ICS Advent family of I/O and data acquisition products accommodating up to 16 single-ended inputs or eight differential inputs. The card is designed for use in PCI-bus computers. Because fewer computers have ISA slots for data acquisition, ICS Advents new A/D offers a cost effective way for customers to transition to PCI slots from ISA slots. The new A/D card, which has LabVIEW™ and Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT drivers, can be used with existing cards and also provides customers with expansion capabilities.
Up to 256 differential or single-ended analog inputs can be managed by using ICS Advents new PCI-AI/1216 A/D card in conjunction with its AT16-P card. Sixteen AT16DC-Ps can be cascaded on the card providing total capacity for 256 inputs to the 16-input A/D Converter. The AT16-P allows direct interface to sensors such as thermocouples and RTD inputs.
