Specifications

 

20-pinBerg header

Connects to either a ribbon cable (up to 30 feet) or mounts directly into a PC.

AXlink connector

A 4-wireAXlink data/power bus operation.

AXlink Status LED

Green LED shows AXlink data activity. Blink patterns include:

 

• Off - No power, or the controller is not functioning properly.

 

• One blink per second - Normal operation. Device numbers match the

 

programmed device numbers in the Axcess program.

Cables

3 feet (91.4 cm) of ribbon cable with a female 20-pinheader.

Device DIP Switch

8-positiondevice DIP Switch to set theAXP-AI8as an AXlink device.

POTs

HI and LO reference POTs maximize the resolution of joystick operation.

Power requirement

Inputs accept POTs (5K to 100K) or an external DC voltage (0-5V).

Input voltage range

Input voltage range of 0 to +5volts (maximum input voltage is +5volts)

Signal Inputs

8 analog inputs, measured with 10 bit resolution.

SIP Switch

8-positionSIP Switch to turn off unused inputs.
