The ProDAQ 3518 Digital-to-Analog Converter Function Card is one of the ProDAQ range of high density function cards, designed to be fitted to the ProDAQ VXIbus motherboards and LXI function card carriers.

This high density card contains 8 independent 18-bit programmable Digital-to-Analog (DAC) channels. The ProDAQ 3518 DAC Function Card is specially designed for DC applications and takes advantage of new technology products in order to achieve outstanding DC performance.

There are seven standard versions of the ProDAQ 3518 available: 0 to +5V, 0 to +10V, 0 to +20V, ±2V, ±5V, ±10V and ±20V output. Other output ranges are available on request. All voltage outputs have continuous short circuit protection.

Each channel includes the option to use Remote Voltage sensing in order ensure the highest possible DC accuracy.

ProDAQ modules, carriers and function cards provide compatibility with all current popular software environments and allow users to safely and simply expand their existing hardware and software systems. The ProDAQ 3518 DAC Function Card is supplied with drivers for Windows, Linux and VxWorks.

All ProDAQ function cards can be used in both ProDAQ VXIbus motherboards and LXI function card carriers, providing users with the highest channel density and functionality available today.
