Ideal for data collection and communication, the USB3031 combines web hosting, networking,and industrial control on a compact PC/104 footprint. Multiple on-board protocols, including 10/100 Ethernet, CAN, RS232, RS485, USB, I2C, and SPI, makes protocol conversion a snap. Microchip’s PIC32 gives 1.56 DMIPS performance under 100mA of power, making the USB3031 battery friendly.
For control, there are 16 200mA digital I/O lines as well as 4 digital output lines with 500mA sink. The USB3031 has 9 channels of 10-bit A/D plus an optional 8 channels of 12-bit A/D that performs simultaneous conversions in 6u with -10V to +10V DC. Rounding out the industrial I/O are 4 channels of 12-bit D/A with -10V to +10V DC.
Other industrial I/O features include three timers, a programmable LED, battery-backed real-time clock, watchdog timer, and temperature sensor. I/O expansion is available with StackableUSB™ which accommodates up to (10) StackableUSB client industrial I/O boards.
USB3031 connects to desktop PCs and laptops via ICSP for development with Microchip’s easy-to-use MPLAB IDE software tools.
The UB3031 is the ideal solution for cost-sensitive control applications requiring supervisory management, mid-range data acquisition (DA), and peripheral control that is common to most industrial automation applications
