Model 621 | 72-channel digital I/O
- 72 bi-directional TTL lines, programmable in banks of 8
- 64 lines have edge detection and interrupts
- 8 lines have input strobe and output enable control
- Output driver readback
Model 621 is a low-cost PCI digital I/O board for interfacing a large number of discrete logic signals to PCI computers. Its 72 I/O lines are software programmable as inputs or outputs in banks of eight lines.
When enabled, sixty four of the lines can detect logic state changes. A flag is set in a 64-bit register for each input that changes state. The register may be polled to determine which inputs have changed state. The 621 may optionally generate an interrupt whenever state changes occur.
Eight of the 72 I/O channels have special functionality. When programmed as inputs they may be used to latch input data upon command from an external strobe signal.
If these eight lines are programmed as outputs, an external strobe signal can tri-state/enable the data outputs. For additional flexibility, the data direction of these special I/O lines are programmable in two 4-bit blocks.
The 621 adapter may be connected to as many as three Model 720RB solid-state relay boards. Each 720RB relay board accepts twenty four industry standard relays.
