PMC230A modules have eight 16-bit D/A converter (DACs) to provide highly-accurate analog voltage outputs. A unique two-piece board design brings the proven reliability of Acromag’s IndustryPack® (IP) A/D modules to a PMC format. An IP230A module is embedded on a PMC interface card that maintains maximum performance and transparent communication to the host.

Jumper-selectable output ranges give you the choice of unipolar or bipolar voltage output. And for greater flexibility, the PMC230A module accepts conversion start triggers from software commands, or from external sources for synchronization to specific events.

The PMC230A is a drop-in replacement for the PMC230, please see the known differences document below for more information.
Known differences between the PMC230 and the PMC230A.

Specifications

Analog Outputs:

Output configuration: 8 voltage output channels.
D/A Resolution: 16 bits.
Output ranges: ±5V, ±10V, 0 to 10V (jumper-selectable).
Maximum throughput rate: Outputs can be updated simultaneously or individually. One channel: 100KHz (10μS/conversion) Eight channels: 100KHz (10μS/8 ch).
DAC programming: Immediate (transparently programmed to DAC output); simultaneous (input latches of DACs are loaded before simultaneously updating outputs).
System accuracy: 0.0061% of 20V span max. corrected error (i.e. calibrated) at 25°C with output unloaded.
Output at reset: 0V for bipolar output, 5V for unipolar.
Output current: -5 to +5mA (maximum).
Short circuit protection: Indefinite at 25°C.

Electrical/Mechanical Interface:
Single-Width Module. Two-piece board design.
32-bit PCI Target: Implemented by Altera FPGA.
4K Memory Space Required: One Base Address Register.

  • 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.
