USB Input boards

USB Input board with 16 inputs

In any industrial automation environment where there is a PC, there is also the need to be able to read digital signals and to drive power outputs ; at the same time this has to be done in a very reliable way, without add- ing unneeded complexity to cabling and connections. USB-I is the product that solves all requirements connected with automation in harsh environments; nevertheless it is very easy to use, thanks to the integrated USB hub, the quick coupling terminals, the universal software libraries that avoid using custom drivers. All these features sum up to a very cheap installation, that is also very easy to carry out and then later maintain.

A special attention has been paid to the handling of energency situations, via both hardware and software external and internal checks, as well as to the electromagnetic immunity, thanks to the galvanically isolated power supply.

We selected an USB interface for our input board because it allows an easy connection to almost every PC of a big number of boards, keeping at the same time a predictable low delay and high transfer rate. USB-I manufacturing and engineering are completely done in Europe, thus ensuring quality and long operating life ; we guarantee the product availability over the years too.
