The APCIe-1711 board is a fast multifunction and multichannel counter board for the PCI Express bus. The strengths of this board are its wide range of applications and high precision and reliability for industrial applications. With this board you can realise many different applications on the same hardware base. The board is supplied with a pool of functions which provide the user with maximum efficiency yet minimum space and parts requirement. The functions are individually configured for each channel through the supplied software. The flexible programming facilities on this board allow many different
user applications to be quickly and easily developed and reconfigured as further requirements arise. Thanks to the FPGA board structure, further counting applications can
be realised through software adaptation. Contact us!
