This card has
been designed to provide a flexible interface and functions to your
computer projects, by using the parallel port control software.
This board comes as a response to many customers that have been
asking for a faster way to connect devices and reduce the
possibility of wiring errors.
Safety Charge Pump.
It has a
built-in safety charge pump that can be enabled or disabled.
It also comes with an external enabling if you would also need an
additional safety control device.
Easy installation of an On/Off switch. You can
control the card externally.
An On/Off or an
additional Safety Charge Pump can easily be installed to enable or
disable the card. CNC could be dangerous machines and, remember,
safety comes first. Having the power supplied externally gives you
the ability to turn your system on or off. This card is provided
with an extra pin (EN) that allows you to control the card
externally by enabling or disabling outputs externally. The card
must have +5vdc supplied in the EN pin to enable outputs. You can
hardwire the connection if you are not going to use this safety
feature. That way can choose which safety feature to implement, or
a combination of both, or no safety feature at
Built-in Optoisolated Variable Speed
It has an analog
0-10VDC output that will convert a step signal into an analog
signal that can be used to command a commercial
8 amp AC Solid State Relay.
It is very
useful to use a solid state relay instead of a mechanical relay for
starting motors or other devices that might produce arcs at
contact. This will increase the life of the motors and relay.
This relay is also optoisolated from the rest of the board and has
a replaceable fuse.
8 amp Solid State Relay with NO and NC
relays are very flexible because they can be used for AC or DC and
come with NO and NC (Normally Open and Normally Closed)
All inputs and
outputs are buffered through the use of high speed and high power
buffers, with the result that your devices receive all the power
