APCI-3701 Length Measurement Board

Quick Overview

The APCI-3701 is a PCI length measurement board with 8 or 16 channels for inductive transducers, LVDT or half-bridge sensors. The APCI-3701 includes a sinus generator supply. 64-bit drivers for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP and Linux as well as programming samples are included, real-time drivers for Windows and Linux are available on request. Software includes 50 pre-calibrated transducer options and easy step by step instructions for calibrating transducers to individual channels.

Features

  • PCI interface to the 32-bit data bus, 3.3 V or 5 V
  • Acquisition of 8 or 16 inductive transducers (half-bridge, LVDT)
  • 16-bit resolution
  • Sampling rate depending on the transducer: APCI-3701-8/-16: from 2 to 20 kHz
  • Measuring frequency programmable through software: Standard version APCI-3701-8/-16: from 2 to 20 kHz (50 kHz on request)
  • Conversion triggered through software, digital input or timer
  • End of conversion through software and/or interrupt
  • PCI-DMA access
  • Onboard FIFO
