The PCI-SynchroTM Series product line are full size PCI 2.2 compliant synchro, resolver, and LVDT I/O cards, and resolver-sensor card sets are used as absolute encoder systems.
These cards are ideally suited for both industrial and COTS military concerns, using any PCI bus compatible computer for simulation, ATE, “Absolute” position sensing and motion control, coordinates & process control, navigation, GPS, data acquisition, radar, ships speed indicators, antenna & targeting applications.
The PCI-SynchroTM Series converters provide up to 4 and 8 channels of Isolated Synchro/ResolverLVDT/RVDT or absolute encoder interface on a single, standard full size 2 PCI printed circuit card.
Computer Conversions’ full line of standard, proven “whole” Synchro/Resolver input and output type converters, CT’s and CDX’s etc...are used to populate the same standard PCI compliant CCA’s.
Differing converters may be mixed to minimize real estate of any type. Both industrial and COTS military grade (extended) temperature range versions are available.
100% Transformer Isolation is offered for all AC I/O, and various Isolated DC converters are available as standard product, eliminating concerns for ground-loops, ground interjected (intermittent and ghostly) field noise, inductive surges, differing potentials, and high voltage field transients from effecting the card itself, the sensitive PCI bus backplane and any other device or system sharing these signals.
Maximum versatility has been employed on all PCI-SynchroTM products to assure the universal compatibility in addressing, timing, system, and specific computer hardware, software, and
All PCI-SynchroTM cards are configured with full plug and play capabilities, and are ideally suited to real-time applications because there is no PCI-Bus latency. The interface is a solidly reliable / high speed, true 32 bit “Long-Word-Level” register access.
Status registers are provided for various levels of fault indication, Built-in-Test (where applicable), and configurations criteria.
A sample demonstration program written in Visual C++ is provided with source code, which may be easily modified by the user for his/her particular application.
The demonstration program (with source code) is provided for Out-of-the-Box testing, without any user programming required.
All cards maybe user configured completely Bus-Powered, with no external power supplies required. Power source jumpers are provided to select the +/-12VDC power source as “Bus-Powered” or as external inputs via the onboard terminal block.
The use of “proven whole converter” modules assures the user of guaranteed system accuracy and dynamics ability, long term conversions integrity and stability.
All wiring is made through standard or 50 pin “D” style connectors.
Isolated D-A/A-D Converters, Digital Modulators, Demodulators, AC Reference Supplies & related function converters may be used with these cards. The availability of synchro/resolver I/O on the PCI Bus, allows the user to configure his systems with resident test ability, switched manual or automatic self test, and simulation type programs.
