DNA-PPC8-1G – 6-slot, Eth I/O, DAQ and Control Cube with PowerPC CPU

8-layer enclosure; room for 6 I/O layers; CPU + GigE/1000Base-T NIC; PowerPC 400 Mhz CPU; 24V (100 W) power supply, and FAN option


The PowerDNA (Distributed Networked Automation) Cube is a compact, rugged, Gigabit Ethernet-based DAQ interface. Its flexibility allows you to configure one or more cubes to match the specific I/O requirements of your application, making it ideally suited for a wide variety of industrial, aerospace and laboratory data acquisition and control applications.



  • Slots for 6 I/O boards
  • Over 30 different I/O boards available
  • Two independent Gigabit (1000/100/10Base-T) Ethernet Interfaces One port for Control, the second for diagnostics
  • Two USB 2.0 ports (one controller & one slave)
  • Inter-Cube sync interface
  • Rugged: 50 g shock, 3 g Vibration, -40 to +70°C, 0 – 16,000 feet
  • Compact: 4″ x 4.1″ x 5.8″
  • Real-time: 1000 I/O scans in < 1 millisecond
  • Complete Windows, Linux and RT OS support
  • LabVIEW™, MATLAB support and more
  • Standalone deployment as UEIPAC, UEISim or UEIModbus

The PowerDNA Cube is populated with the I/O modules that are selected to match your process or test application. With over 70 different I/O boards available we’re sure to have just what your application requires. We currently offer:
  • Analog input boards to measure voltage, current, strain gages, thermocouples and more
  • Analog output boards with outputs to ±40 V or ±50 mA
  • Digital I/O interfaces for logic and “real-world” signal levels
  • Counters and timers
  • Quadrature encoder inputs
  • Communications interfaces for RS-232, RS-422/485, ARINC 429/453/708, AFDX, MIL-STD-1553 and the CAN bus.

The PowerDNA Cube is supported by all the popular Windows, Linux and Real-time operating systems. All DNx series products share the same, easy to use, yet flexible API. Windows users can also use the UEIDAQ Framework which provides an extremely simple and universal API supporting all common programming languages.


The Cube is also fully supported by an extensive array of application packages including LabVIEW, MATLAB and more.
