New 64 Channel Digital Output Board Features: High Isolation, Safety Cutoff and BIT

Beyond Electronics, a technology leader providing rugged, real-time computing solutions to OEMs and system integrators, has introduced a new 64 channel, VMEbus, digital output board. The feature rich board is particularly suited to rugged, critical applications, but the highly optimized design is still low cost.

The board can operate while switching up to 55 Volts DC. Each channel is a fully independent solid state relay. Voltage isolation is 1 KVrms channel to VMEbus and 500 Vrms channel to channel. All channels power on to the same state. One of the key features of the board is the safety cutoff. A separate input is provided that enables an external device to turn off all outputs. A built in test feature is also provided in the board that allows the board to be put into a local loopback mode to check the registers, local connectivity without changing the outputs and the VMEbus interface.

The board is available for extended temperature operation of -40 to +80C. It is shipping in production and available now.
