i2x

TERN controllers are designed to offer a rich array of I/O, but experienced embedded engineers know you can never have enough. TERN's i2x I/O expanders are intended to solve this problem once and for all by providing a low cost, simple, reliable, and nearly limitless expansion for TERN controllers. TERN's i2x product line adds an unprecedented degree of flexibility to your application design.

c24

Independent 24 16-bits counter.

MMC

With dimensions of 3.6 x 2.3 inches, the MMC is a multipurpose expansion card designed to add up to 8M bytes of high speed SRAM, a CompactFlash card receptacle, a 100 M baseT Ethernet/IP module, and 4 channels of 16-bit high speed ADC inputs.

CUSB

The CUSB is a low cost USB solution for TERN C/C++ programmable controllers. Many TERN controllers feature high performance peripherals such as high speed (1 MHz) parallel 16-bit ADCs, 300KHz 12-bit ADCs, image sensors, motion control, and 10 MHz counters. Inevitably, some user applications need to transfer data in and out to a PC at very high speed. The traditional RS232 serial transfer data rate can only manage a peak bandwidth of approximately 10K bytes per second (at 115,200 baud). USB interfaces provide a transfer rate that's up to 50 times faster.

UART8

The UART8 (UR8) is an expansion card designed to easily add 8 serial ports to any TERN controller, making the units even more flexible for a whole range of new applications that have high serial communication needs.

PowerDrive

The PowerDrive (PD), measuring 7.9 by 5.6 inches, features numerous peripherals. This includes eight channels of high-speed 12-bit ADC (LTC1272, 3 us, on-chip sample-and-hold and reference), four channels of fast settling 12-bit DAC (MAX527, 5ms settling, 1 LSB error), six channels of high voltage/current drivers that can sink 350 mA each channel at 50V, 16 digital inputs, 10 digital outputs, eight comparator inputs that take either analog (10-bit resolution) or digital inputs.

D40

The W40 is a low-cost pin-screw terminal adaptor. It can be used to convert the standard 0.1" lead spacing 20x2 pin headers to 40 screw terminals for easier field wiring. The W40-P has a 20x2 pin-header for interfacing via flat ribbon cable. The W40S has a 20x2 socket for mounting directly on top of pin-headers.

VE232 - 5V & RS232 Adapter

The VE232 measures 2.3 by 1.4 inches. It takes unregulated +9-12V DC input, and provides regulated +5V power, negative voltage, two RS-232 drivers, and one RS-485 driver. It connects to the controllers via a 10x2 header. The VE232 is useful in providing drivers and voltage sources for the various engine controllers.

Relais-7

In many industrial applications, 12V or 24V control signals are required. However, most embedded controllers support only TTL level (0-5V) input or output. The Relay7 (R7) is designed to support TTL-level and high-voltage (up to 30V) signal conversion. Seven power relays are provided on the R7. Each power relay provides Normal Close, Normal Open, and COM contacts, and are rated for 10 A operation.

PC-Co

The PC-Co (PC) is a low-cost I/O board with up to 100 I/O lines and a PC-ISA bus. You may use the PC-Co as a standalone controller or install it in a PC ISA slot as a co-processor board. It contains three power relays (5 A). It also has four solenoid drivers capable of sinking 350 mA at 50V.

P50

Measuring 4.4 x 3.1 inches, the P50 is an I/O expansion board designed for and driven by TERN's 586-Engine. The parallel ADC and DAC on the P50 can only be used by boards, such as the 586-Engine, with a 16-bit external data bus.

P300-P100

Measuring 7.5 by 5.0 by 0.8 inches, the P300 is designed for applications that requires massive number of I/O lines. The P300 can provide up to 300 I/O lines and can be used in a large control system to drive lights or solenoids and to monitor switches. These expansion controllers are generally driven by one of the Engine controllers (ranging from the A-Engine to the 586-Engine), providing easy C-programmable access to the various periphal components.

OPA Analog input board

The OPA is designed for adding 16-bit ADC inputs and analog signal conditioning to embedded controllers. The OPA has eight operational amplifiers with high input impedance, which by default converts industrial standard +-10V analog input signals to 0-4V analog signals. The 0-4V analog signal can then directly feed into the ADC, external or on-board. These inputs are then compatible with many ADCs on existing TERN controllers that only only accept 0-5V input ranges.

OPS

The OPS is designed for data-acquisition, control, or test applications that require analog signal conditioning circuit to provide high input impedance, high gain, low noise to low-voltage output sensors, such as EKG electrodes, thermocouples, and strain gauges. Most standard ADC inputs are 0-5V. If you need to interface low-voltage output to ADC input, or if you want to amplify low voltage analog signal for output, OPS is the little analog signal conditional circuit board for you.

MotionC

The MotionC family of boards are used to provide a stand-alone, motor control board for a number of different motion control applications. They are expansion boards driven by a family of TERN C/C++ programmable controllers, and have flexible outputs for interfacing to a wide range of different motors. The DSP-based solution provided by the MotionC family of products makes developing a wide range of multi-axis motion-control applications far easier.

MemCard - PCMCIA Expansion

The MemCard(MM) from TERN provides a variety of functionalities to expand upon TERN controllers' capabilities. It supports PCMCIA ATA type flash memory cards, 24-bit and 12-bit ADCs, and a 10BASE-T Ethernet interface. It provides a high performance mass data storage and general I/O expansion solution to many portable embedded applications. PCMCIA cards eliminate the problems of weight, power-consumption and reliability associated with electro-mechanical disk-based systems. A low power version VE+MM unit only consumes less than 5 mA in the standby mode. It is an ideal low cost, low power system for portable applications.

LittleDRive (LD)

The LittleDrive is a standalone communication system controller that supports 10 serial ports, 80 I/O lines including 22 high-voltage, high-current drivers, and an LCD interface. The LittleDrive can be used in computer networking, process control, protocol switching, ISDN front ends, and remote data acquisition and control.

User definable 8x2 key layout paper can be customized and inserted underneath the blue plastic overlay. Software sample programs are available demonstrating how the unit is programmed in C/C++.
