AP445 modules provide 32 isolated solid-state relay outputs to safely control discrete devices.

A major AP445 advantage is its flexibility. The module supports wide range bipolar (AC or DC) voltage switching. Each port can be configured for high or low-side switches. The outputs are TTL-compatible when configured as low-side switches and populating on board pull up resistors  or using external pull-ups.

Isolation protects your computer system from noise, transient signals, and field wiring faults. Outputs are grouped into four 8-channel ports. Ports are isolated via solid-state relays from the logic and from each other.

Readback buffers simplify output status monitoring. And for easy closed-loop monitoring of critical control signals, use the AP445 with an AP440 input module.

Designed for COTS applications these isolated digital output modules deliver high-density, high-reliability, and high-performance at a low cost.

When used together, the AP440 input module and AP445 output module simplify loop-back monitoring of your critical signals.

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

The AP445 series modules are 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 strandoff 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. Pin spacing and signal assignments will allow for 100V of port to port isolation. Logic and field lines are isolated from each other for voltages up to 250V AC or DC on a continuous basis.

The AP445 series 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 Outputs

Output channel configuration: 32 isolated solid-state relays support AC or DC (high/low-side switching) operation.
Isolation: Logic and field connections are optically isolated by solid-state relays. Individual ports are also isolated from each other. Output lines of an individual port share a common connection and are not isolated from each other. IP Logic and field lines are isolated from each other for voltages up to 250V AC or 354V DC on a continuous basis (unit will withstand a 1450V AC dielectric strength test for one minute without breakdown).
Voltage range: 0 to ±60V DC or peak AC.
Output ON current range: 150mA maximum continuous (up to 1A total per port).
Turn on time: 1ms typical, 2ms maximum.
Turn off time: 0.2ms typical, 1ms maximum.
Output pull-up resistors: Not populated, consult factory.

  • 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.
