AcPC730 I/O boards provide a variety of I/O functions on a single card. These high-density boards perform both high-speed and high-resolution A/D and D/A conversion and also handle digital I/O plus counter/timer functions. Now you can conserve your precious card slots and still get all the I/O functionality you need. The AcPC730 is designed for extreme versatility with many deluxe features to meet most applications. However, the AcPC730 is still very budget-friendly.
