The AP418 monitors or controls the on/off (high/low) status of up to 16 devices. Each channel can be used as an input or output.

All 16 input channels can be configured with interrupts for a change of state or level detection of any bit. The TTL input threshold includes hysteresis for increased noise immunity.

In order to ensure safe, reliable control under all conditions, output operation is “fail-safe.” That is, the outputs are always off upon power-up and are automatically cleared following a software reset.

Loopback monitoring of critical control signals is easy since the input and output circuitry are connected in tandem to each channel.

Designed for COTS applications these digital I/O 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 AP418 module is 70mm long, this is 19.05mm longer than the full-length mini-PCIe card at 50.95mm. The board’s width is the same as mPCIe board of 30mm and they use the same mPCIe standard board hold down stand-off and screw keep out areas.

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

The AP418 maintains the same functionality and memory map of the existing Industry Pack modules providing a smooth transition to the AcroPack I/O modules.

Performance Specifications

Digital Inputs

Input channel configuration: 16 non-inverting buffered inputs with a common connection .
Input signal voltage range: 0 to 60V DC, maximum.
Input signal threshold: TTL compatible. Limited to TTL levels of 0.8V DC (max.low level) and 2.0V DC (minimum high level).
Interrupts: Change-of-state and level on channels 0-15.

Digital Outputs

Channel configuration:
Each output can be configured to be a low-side switch or a high-side switch. Low-side switch has open-drain output with source connected to common. High-side switch has open-drain output with source connected to excitation voltage source.
Output ON current range: 0 to 2A DC, per channel (5A total). No deration required at elevated ambients.
Output Rds ON Resistance: Low-side switch – 0.1 ohm Max.; High-side switch – 0.2 ohm Max.

PCI Express Base Specification

Conforms to revision 2.1
Lanes: 1 lane in each direction.
Bus Speed: 2.5 Gbps (Generation 1).

  • 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.
