PCI-AC5 and PCI-AC5e Adapter Card Quick Start
For additional hardware and software
information, see form 1211, the PCI-AC5, PCIeAC5, and AC5 User's Guide, included on the CD.
Installing the Adapter Card
NOTE: The adapter card should be installed before you install
the SDK software.
The PCI-AC5 adapter card installs into any PCI expansion
slot of a computer; the PCIe-AC5 installs into any PCIe
expansion slot. Note the power requirements listed in
the Specifications table in form 1211, the PCI-AC5, PCIeAC5, and AC5 User's Guide.
1. Turn off the computer. Remove the power cord and
the computer’s cover.
The power cord must be removed, as a sudden
spike may cause the computer to boot.
2. Before handling the card, discharge excess static
electricity by touching the computer’s metal
3. Push the ribbon cable through one of the slot
openings in the computer, and then attach the
cable to the adapter card.
Use the connector end that allows the cable to lie
CAUTION: Do not scratch this card or other cards in the
computer, as scratching may irreversibly damage the
card or other devices.
4. Install the card in the expansion slot. Verify that the
card is properly seated in the motherboard socket.
Secure the card with the screw.
5. Connect the cable from the adapter card to the
Opto 22 I/O mounting rack. See form 1211, the PCIAC5, PCIe-AC5, and AC5 User's Guide for cable part
numbers and pinouts.
6. Reinstall the power cord.
7. Turn on the computer.
Because the card is self-configuring, it has no
jumpers. Configuration is automatically performed
by the BIOS when the card is installed.
If you are using Windows Vista or an earlier version
of Windows and a “Found New Hardware” message
appears, simply click Cancel. The setup program will
install the device driver automatically.

Installing the SDK Software
This SDK includes a sample application, Windows drivers,
and user documentation.
NOTE: If you are using a different operating system or a non-PC
hardware platform, you will need to write your own driver. See
form 1211, the PCI-AC5, PCIe-AC5, and AC5 User's Guide for
more information.
1. Insert the CD in your CD-ROM drive to start the SDK
Setup Wizard.
2. Follow the wizard’s instructions.
3. On the Select Components screen, select your
computer’s operating system.
For Windows 8, Windows 7, or Vista, choose the 64-bit
version or the 32-bit version.
Select the operating system
NOTE: If you have already installed the driver for another
adapter card, you will receive an error that there is currently
1 open application using WinDriver. If this happens, simply
click Cancel to continue with the rest of the installation.
5. When setup is complete, click the Finish button.
For additional information on installing the card and using
the driver, see the PCI-AC5, PCIe-AC5, and AC5 User's Guide.
