National Instruments announced that they have released five new digital I/O boards that offer superior ease of use and deterministic performance at a low cost for industrial measurement and control and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) applications.

Priced at $250 each, these new boards deliver NI-DAQmx software technology for Windows and NI LabVIEW Real-Time, as well as a high-reliability industrial feature set and a 37-pin subminiature-D on their front panels for easy connectivity with low-cost accessories.

Each device offers industrial features such as watchdog timers, optical isolation, programmable power-up states, programmable input filters, change detection and industrial certifications. The new modules include the PCI-6510, a 30Vdc, optically isolated, industrial 32 digital sinking/sourcing input; the PCI-6516, 30Vdc, optically isolated, industrial 32 digital sourcing input; the PCI-6517, a 30Vdc, optically isolated, industrial 32 digital sinking input; the PCI-6518, a 30Vdc, optically isolated, industrial 16 digital sinking/sourcing input, 16 digital sourcing output; and the PCI-6519, a 30Vdc, optically isolated, industrial 16 digital sinking/sourcing input, 16 digital sinking output.

According to the company, the industrial features offered in the new boards are especially valuable for mission-critical industrial measurement and control applications. Engineers can use programmable power-up states on each digital I/O device to configure the initial digital state in software to ensure safe operation when controlling industrial actuators such as pumps, valves, motors and relays. In addition, the boards feature 24V logic levels to enable direct connections to industrial sensors and actuators. Programmable input filters eliminate noise on inputs, remove glitches and spikes and provide debouncing for digital switches and relays. Also, digital I/O watchdogs protect against a variety of fault conditions such as computer and application crashes.

The new products are completely software programmable without jumpers, and deliver NI-DAQmx measurement services software technology on both Windows and LabVIEW Real-Time OSes.
