DAQ PCI cards

PCA-7428CS

With over 20 years of plug-in DAQ card design and manufacturing experience (ISA, PC/104, PCI, PCI Express), TEDIA provides a wide range of industrial data acquisition and control products.

Although the PCI bus has already been replaced by PCI Express on most standard computers, it is still commonly used in industrial systems. Therefore the TEDIA DAQ PCI card portfolio has been upgraded and the second generation of cards already supports all versions of the PCI bus with both 5V and 3.3V signal levels.

The current range of TEDIA DAQ PCI cards includes standard multifunction cards (ie. analog inputs with additional I/O ports) as well as special counter cards (quadrature IRC encoders and bidirectional counters) or digital port cards. Since the signal interface on the I/O connectors remained compatible with the first generation of cards, the wide range of accessories is available.
