BaseBoard® ISA

The BaseBoard® is a full size ISA card that provides flexible, programmable digital input/output for the ISA computer. The card features four 40 position pin header connectors that provide 96 Digital I/O connections. The header connectors accept ribbon cables for direct connection to external equipment, or to screw terminals. A unique bracket design allows all the cables to exit from the single slot while providing strain-relief. A family of optional Modules can be installed directly on the BaseBoard® / ISA to enhance its capabilities by providing up to 5000v of optical isolation; over-voltage protection; the ability to monitor / control high-voltage signals; Analog-to-Digital Conversion and Digital-to-Analog Conversion

Information about the BaseBoard is provided on this page. Also included is information on BaseBoard® accessories including optional add-on modules, screw terminals, cables, and solid state relays

BaseBoard® / ISA customers should take a look at our BaseBoard / PCI product that can run your current software without any modification required!

Solid-State-Relay (SSR)

Digital I/O signals from the computer are typically TTL type of signals. This means that they are 5v logic and can typically source/sink current in the 15 to 64ma range. If you need to control or sense higher voltage signals (example 60v DC or 120v/240v AC) and/or higher current signals (example 3 Amps instead of 64ma), then a solution could be to use Solid-State-Relays (SSR).

The SSR come in 4 flavors (which are also made in different colors to help distinguish them).

  • DC OUTPUT
  • AC OUTPUT
  • DC INPUT
  • AC INPUT
