DS6202 Digital I/O Board

SCALEXIO I/O board for generating and capturing digital signals

The DS6202 provides precise bidirectional digital I/O channels and comprehensive I/O functions, making it ideal for various application areas, such as renewable energy, electric drives control, robotics, and mechanical test benches. 

With its precise digital I/O channels and its comprehensive I/O functions the DS6202 Digital I/O Board is ideally suited for various application areas, such as renewable energy, electric drives control, robotics, vehicle engineering, and mechanical test benches. It captures digital signals for measuring parameters, such as position, frequency, and phase and generates digital signal patterns to control actuators or to simulate sensors. 

Key Benefits

The DS6202 Digital I/O Board provides 32 digital high-speed channels that support of 3.3 V and 5 V TTL voltage levels. Each channel is software-configurable as an input or output. Adjacent channels can be configured as full-differential inputs with RS-485 signal levels. Based on its comprehensive I/O library, the DS6202 combines a wide variety of high-performance I/O tasks on a single board. The board features general digital I/O functions plus advanced functionality, such as high-resolution signal capturing and pattern generation. Furthermore, the DS6202 provides interfaces for up to six incremental encoders.
