The cube’s I/O slots are 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 popular Windows, Vista, Linux and Real-time operating systems. Our UEIDAQ Framework provides a simple and universal API and supports all common programming languages. The Cube is also fully supported by an extensive array of application packages including LabVIEW, MATLAB, and more.
