  • High-Current Outputs can sink 32 milliamps, and source 32 milliamps per channel. This is true even while operating at high temperatures.
  • Direct Interfacing to OPTO-22's isolated I/O racks. Digital I/O connector is organized to allow direct connection to OPTO-22's isolated I/O racks that use the G4 serial of I/O modules, the PB16-H, PB16-J, PB16-K, PB16-L, PB8H and the PB24HQ.
  • Environmental: Wide operating temperature range of -40oC to +85oC
  • Polarized connectors prevent incorrect cable installations
  • LED status: an LED displays valid card read/write transactions useful for both product development and field status.
  • Single +5V operation: approximately 500 milliwatts (inputs/outputs unloaded)
  • Out-gassing and fire avoidance: we do not use any tantalum or electrolytic capacitors in any products.
  • Reliability: MTBF of 724,559 hours per MIL-HDBK-217F ground benign at 25oC.
  • Production: Designed and Assembled in Wisconsin, USA, utilizing an ISO 9001 manufacturing facility.
