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 low profile PCI Express slot. A standard profile bracket is also included.
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.
