PCI Adapter Card for Direct I/O

Please call (800) 321-6786 to order.

Production Specification

The PCI-AC5 adapter card provides an interface between personal computers with a 33 MHz PCI bus and Opto 22 digital I/O mounting racks, for direct connection to input/output points. No brain (I/O processor) is required.

The PCI-AC5 is about 100 times as fast as the older AC5 adapter card and can control up to 48 I/O points.

Use the PC-Based Direct I/O SDK with this adapter card.

IMPORTANT: When choosing digital I/O for use with this card, make certain that you choose 5 VDC logic I/O modules. The card is not compatible with 15 VDC or 24 VDC I/O.

Compatible racks and I/O: If you need a similar card using the PCI Express bus, see the PCIe-AC5.

For system diagrams and more information, see the PC-Based I/O Control Overview.

1. Rev C card shows “9278” on the white label; older Rev B card shows a number beginning with “8939”. Rev C card requires both 5.0 and 3.3 volts. This card is not compatible with computers that supply 5 VDC only.

2. Choose 5 VDC logic modules that are compatible with the mounting rack used.
WARNING: Do not use 15 VDC or 24 VDC modules (such as the IDC15 and IDC24). Using these modules with 15 or 24 VDC logic power can cause serious damage to the adapter card and to the computer.

3. The PC-Based Direct I/O SDK no longer supports the AC5 or G4AC5 adapter cards. For these cards, you can continue to use version R5.0b of the PC-Based Direct I/O SDK (PC_Based_Direct _IO_SDK_R5.0b.exe). It can be downloaded from Opto 22's FTP site.

PC-Based I/O Overview

This document shows examples of system architecture for PC-based I/O control systems and lists Opto 22 products that work together for PC-based control. System examples include:

  • Ethernet systems using SoftPAC, a software-based programmable automation controller programmed with PAC Control
  • Ethernet systems using the OptoMMP protocol
  • Direct control of I/O using no I/O processor (no brain)
  • Serial control using a brain and the mistic or Optomux protocol
  • High-speed control using the Pamux protocol
