[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS]

The AP730 mini PCIe-based interface board provides a variety of I/O functions on a single plug-in card. This new high-density module performs both high-speed and high resolution A/D and D/A conversions plus digital I/O and counter/timer functions.

Now you can conserve your precious AcroPack slots and still get all the I/O functionality you need. The AP730 is designed for extreme versatility with many deluxe features to meet most applications. However, the AP730 is still very budget-friendly.

The AP730 modules are 70mm long (19.05mm longer than the full-length mini PCIe card at 50.95mm). The board’s width is the same as an mPCIe board at 30mm and uses the same standard board hold down standoff and screw keep out areas.

A down facing 100 pin Samtec connector will mate with the carrier card. This ensures a secure connection for your I/O. 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.
