BOHEMIA, NY – April 2017 -- North Atlantic Industries, Inc. (NAI) has launched a new generation of single-slot, half-size, PCle boards that can be configured with up to three intelligent I/O and communication function modules. The 79G5 PCle multifunction I/O and communication board is ideally suited for a wide range of commercial applications with high-density I/O requirements. This includes digital and analog I/O, position control and measurement/simulation and communication interface applications.
The off-the-shelf solution is built on NAI’s Configurable Open System Architecture™ (COSA®), which supports more than 40 different intelligent I/O, communication, measurement and simulation functions. These preexisting, fully-tested functions can be combined quickly and easily in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system processor from unnecessary data management overhead.
“The NAI Custom-On-Standard-Architecture (COSA) delivers the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any multifunction I/O board in the industry,” states Lino Massafra, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NAI. As a result, the 79G5 PCle multifunction I/O and communication board meets the needs of commercial, military and aerospace applications that require measurements, simulation and communications. The 79G5 has been designed for environments with operating temperature ranges of 0° to 70° C. Background Built-in-Test (BIT) continually checks and reports on the health of each channel.
NAI offers more than 40 intelligent, field-proven function modules covering a wide variety of I/O, Measurement and Simulation, Communications, Ethernet switch and SBC functions.
