The AP323E-LF AcroPack model monitors 20 differential or 40 single-ended input channels. When used with a carrier that holds four AP modules, up to 160 inputs can be obtained from a single card cage slot.

Software or an external hardware input can trigger A/D conversions for synchronization to external events.

On-board, precision voltage references enable accurate software calibration of the module without external instruments.

Designed for COTS applications these analog input modules deliver high-density, high-reliability, and high-performance at a low cost.

AcroPack modules are RoHS compliant and ideal for military, defense, automation, aerospace, scientific, and development labs industries.

The AcroPack® product line updates our popular Industry Pack I/O modules with a PCIe interface format. This COTS tech-refresh design offers a compact size, low-cost I/O in a rugged form factor. Combine different AcroPack modules on one carrier for a simplified modular approach to system assembly.

The AP323E-LF modules are 70mm long, 19.05mm longer than the full length mini PCIe card. The board’s width is the same as mPCIe board and use the same mPCIe standard board hold down standoff and screw keep out areas.

A down facing 100 pin Samtec connector mates with the carrier card. Fifty of these signals are available as field I/O signals.

  • Description

    An application programming interface with function routines for AcroPack modules/carriers. Customizable for other operating systems.

    Function Libraries for VxWorks

    Acromag’s software development tools greatly simplify the interface between AcroPack I/O boards and your application program. Libraries provide easy-to-use C function routines that quickly integrate with your application. The C functions are ready for use “as-is,” but they are also easily customized for your unique application.

    DLL Driver for Windows

    This package provides DLL driver level support for Acromag’s line of AcroPack products.

    AcroPack Windows Driver Software consists of low – level drivers and Windows Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) that facilitate the development of Windows applications accessing Acromag AcroPack I/O modules.

    The software includes kernel drivers and DLLs for both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows. Applications developed to run on 32-bit versions of Windows use the 32-bit kernel drivers and 32-bit DLLs. Applications developed to run on 64-bit versions of Windows use the 64-bit kernel drivers and either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLLs. Except where noted otherwise, the usage of the 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs is identical.
