Adlink Technology Inc. is increasing is visibility in industrial automation and machine control with the introduction of its PCI-7260 high-power eight-channel
relay output card capable of switching 5A current at 250VAC or 5A current at 30VDC.
The PCI-7260’s pluggable front-panel connector gives consideration to both carrying high current and easy wiring and incorporates eight isolated digital input channels with debouncing circuits to eliminate signal jitter.
To carry high current over the PCB, the trace space, trace width and copper thickness are carefully designed to follow the guidelines of the EN61010-1 safety standard. A high-power pluggable connector is used instead of the traditional D-Sub connector in order to support an 8A rated current.
The PCI-7260 has a hardware implemented emergency shutdown function, which lets users switch all relays to a safety state by giving a digital signal to EMG_SHDN input from the front panel.
The card supports 3.3V and 5V Universal PCI Bus, as well as Windows 98/NT/2000/XP and Linux operating systems.
