(Cincinnati, Ohio – 1/03/2007) - The eAutomation Group of Advantech introduces the PCI-1739U 48-channel digital I/O universal PCI card for both 3.3 V and 5 V PCI bus signaling. The PCI-1739U uses popular Opto-22 compatible 50-pin connectors for interfacing to many signal conditioning and termination options.

The PCI-1739U has an interrupt function that can output a digital signal synchronized with an internal PC interrupt generated by the card. Other features include software configurable digital I/O channels, 0 ~ 65° C operating temperature, and digital output status read-back.

The PCI-1739U is very practical for industrial settings; the power-on state of the outputs can be configured via dip switches.
