APCI-3600 Noise and Vibration Measurement Board

Quick Overview

The APCI-3600 is a PCI noise and vibration measurement board with 8 channels for ±10V inputs via a BNC male connector with selectable frequencies from 2kHz to 200kHz. Each input channel can be a differential or single ended input with simultaneous sampling. The APCI-3600 includes 2 analogue outputs and 16 configurable digital I/O's. The APCI-3600 includes 8 current sources for direct connection of ICP sensors. 64-bit drivers for Windows and Linux as well as programming samples are included, real-time drivers for Windows and Linux are available on request.
