Low Profile PCI Express 8 Reed Relay Output / 8 Isolated Input Digital Interface (3-30V)



The 8012e Low Profile PCI Express digital interface provides eight optically isolated inputs and eight Reed relay outputs (SPST). The isolated inputs are non-polarized and rated for 3-30 VDC. Optical isolation protects the PC and other sensitive equipment from the voltage spikes and ground loop currents that are common to industrial environments. The Reed relays provide high quality, long-life, dry contact switch closures suitable for low-current applications. The relays are normally open and close when energized. The board is PCI Express X1 compliant and is compatible with any PCI Express slot.

The 8012e is for use in Low Profile PCI Express slots only. Order the 8012eS if you have a standard size PCI Express slot. Sealevel’s SeaIO Classic software drivers and utilities make installation and operation easy using Microsoft Windows operating systems.

1 review for DIO-16.LPCIe

  1. NVerzion – Lynn Williams – Engineering Project Manager

    Customer for over 10 years
    NVerzion integrates the Sealevel DIO-16 product to provide Automated dry contact closures as well as to accept Opto triggers for Manual / Tone intervention. We’ve always been please with the quality of product and the friendliness of the Sales staff. I can’t say much for the Support staff though… simply because I’ve NEVER (in 10+ years) had an issue that required me to call or deal with the Support staff. I’m sure they are a good group to work with.
