The OPTO104 expansion card accommodates eight industry-standard digital or analog OPTO plug-in modules plus any PC/104 CPU or I/O cards needed to make a rugged, compact industrial controller.

can be plugged into This 4.53 X 6.50-in. EPIC-sized board accepts any combination of digital or analog I/O modules. Designed for rugged environments and temperature ranges of 40 to 85°C operation, the board offers optoisolation up to 4,000 V with the proper modules. Up to four OPTO104 boards can be connected together in a slave configuration using a 26-wire ribbon cable.

Additional system-level features include watchdog timer, rotary encoder input, onboard temperature sensor, and interfaces for a character-based LCD, keypad, CANbus, and Dallas iButton Probe. The board operates at 5V ±5%, or, a selection of dc-dc converter options allows an input voltage range from 9 to 75 V.
