Relay Output / Isolated Input Module for PC/104 Bus
The RELAYIO-104 is an 8-bit digital I/O peripheral module offering electrical isolation between the host and externally connected devices. It conforms to the PC/104 standard and operates on a single +5V power supply. A 40-pin IDC ribbon connector is used for all external wiring.
Eight SPDT (form C) relays are used for the digital outputs. Independent access to each relay's Normally-Closed, Normally-Open and Common terminals eases wiring constraints and permits flexible mixing of AC and DC signals. Each output is capable of controlling loads up to 1A @ 24Vdc or 0.5A @ 125VRMS. They also feature Break-Before-Make operation.
An 8-bit output register controls the state of the eight relays. By default, all relays are in a de-activated ( Normally-Closed ) state during power-off and system reset. A relay is activated by writing a "1" to its corresponding bit within the output register. Writing a bit as "0" de-activates the corresponding relay. The register is both readable and writable facilitating efficient Read-Modify-Write bit manipulations software techniques to be used.
Optically Isolated Digital Inputs
Eight separate inputs using non-polarized optical isolators allow any combination of DC or AC signals to be monitored. Their wide input voltage range (3-24V) is suitable for a diverse range of applications. Each input has an associated low-pass filter that can be individually enabled for the reliable measurement of AC signals. The filter is especially helpful when monitoring noisy DC signals.
The on/off states of the inputs are held in an 8-bit read-only register. An activated input appears as a "1" in its corresponding bit position.
Digital Input #0 has the added capability of optionally generating a host interrupt the moment it becomes activated. The event is latched in an interrupt status register so that even a short duration event will not go unrecognized. Applications which do not need full interrupt capability can still use this function by simply polling the interrupt status register.
