The ACEX4040 carrier card allows you to quickly combine a COM Express Type 10 CPU module with a mix of I/O modules for custom computing applications. With its rugged design and compact Mini-ITX form factor, this carrier card is easily mounted in a variety of enclosures for rapid development.
High-density I/O connectors and numerous ports simplify interfacing to field devices and peripherals.

Select from 25+ AcroPack modules to install any combination of analog I/O, digital I/O, serial I/O,
communication, and FPGA processor functions.

Designed for use in systems with size, weight, power and cost restrictions (SWaP-C), this carrier card
provides a flexible solution for a broad range of signal processing tasks. The COM Express site supports high-performance, low-power Intel Atom CPU modules. The four I/O slots interface Acromag’s
rugged AcroPack modules or Mini PCIe cards enabling a powerful mix of measurement, control, and communication capabilities. An M.2 slot offers flexible on-board storage while a SATA connector provides additional data storage options.

  • Description

    Screw terminal panels simplify field signal wiring. A cable connector provides a clean interface to the I/O board or module.

    Many termination panels have a compact footprint and mount neatly on a DIN rail strip. Other panels are designed for mounting directly onto a standard 19-inch computer rack.

    All of Acromag’s I/O boards have a corresponding termination panel. This convenience saves you the time and hassle of finding a compatible panel or crafting your own.

    For more information see modules user manual.
