Fiber Optic Interface to National Instruments TIO-10 Timing Board #1


Description:  Interface board for converting signals on a National Instruments PC-TIO-10 timing board to and from fiber optic signals. Bursts, delayed pulses, and frequencies can be generated on outputs. The input channel can be used to measure frequency or period.

Channels:  5 timing outputs (T4, T6, T7, T8, T9), 1 timing input (T5). Each output can be gated off a master timing clock (T1) or can run independently. T4 can also generate bursts by using T1-T3. T5 is connected to Gate5 on the timing board. There is a 1MHz and 5MHz internal clock on the PC-TIO-10.

Optical:  To be used with 1000-micron plastic fiber optic cable.  Fiber distance should be limited to 40 meters unless special low-loss fiber is used.

Power Req.:  Uses fused +5 V power from computer via PC-TIO-10 I/O connector.

I/O Interface:  HP Versatile Link fiber optic transmitters and receivers.

Physical: Approximately 2.5" X 2.5".

Mounting: Plugs directly into PC-TIO-10 in back of computer.

Accessories:  Fiber Optic Transmitter/Receiver & Repeater Board can be used to receive and send signals to and from board.
