No card is an island. We all know this, but if you buy a digital I/O card today, chances are you will want to add more functions tomorrow. However, choose the wrong I/O card today, and you may outgrow it tomorrow.

Enter the PI-IO48 -- the one digital I/O card designed for expansion. The PI-IO48 is so versatile, it can handle just about any control application; from controlling a single peripheral to orchestrating

Only the PI-IO48 has XCI (external control interface) and XDI (external data interface) buses. These provide seamless connectivity with a host of expansion modules; from an 8-channel photo-coupled input to an 8-channel relay output, or from an A/D converter to a D/A converter.

That's why the PI-IO48 is more than a digital I/O card. It is, in fact, an ideal working base for any I/O application. All the while, it saves you valuable capital, because you can add on only the functions you need, and nothing more.

Whatever application you have in mind for your digital I/O card, you will implement it faster and more reliably with the PI-IO48, because it works the way you work. In fact, it works so smoothly that you may think it was custom-made just for your specific application!
