Product Overview
Mini Circuits’ USB-I/O-16D8R is a general purpose USB controlled I/O box which provides 16 digital I/O lines arranged in 2 Bytes of 8
channels each, and 8 form C relays with dry contact outputs. Each digital I/O byte can operate as Input or Output independently of the
other and can sink or source up to 80mA total (10mA per channel if all channels are active). With selective operation each channel can
sink or source up to 32mA in TTL mode(‘1’ is 5V) or 24mA in LVTTL mode (‘1’ is 3.3V), selection between TTL and LVTTL is through
an external switch. The supplied software allows either USB to SPI conversion or direct control of bit states. Other protocols can be
programed by the user using the supplied API DLL com object. All digital I/O channels are accessed through a single 26 pin IDC type
connector and the relay outputs are accessed through a 34 pin IDC type connector. The relay outputs support an AC load of 125VAC at
0.5A or DC load of 24VDC at 1A and use approximately 25mA each when in operation.
The control box draws all required power from the USB bus (500mA max at 5V) , no external power adaptor is required. The device is
housed in a small, rugged plastic case (size of 4.5" X 3.1" X 1.2") with easy connections that make it a superior choice for applications
such as mobile, robotics, test setups, etc. The model is supplied with a CD containing installation software featuring a friendly GUI and
an API-DLL Com object. Also supplied are a 2.7 ft USB cable and 1 ft IDC cable assemblies for the Relays and Digital I/O connectors.
Longer USB and IDC cables are available as additional accessories.
Key Features
Feature
USB HID (Human Interface Device)
16 TTL channels in 2 Bytes of 8
channels each
8 relays with dry contact outputs
Advantages
Plug-and-Play (no need to install a driver for the device).
Allows controlling and monitoring up to 16 TTL or LVTTL devices, any channel can sink or source up to
32mA at TTL or 24mA at LVTTL so long as the total current through all channels in a given byte remains
bellow 80mA.
Can be used to operate up to 8 analog devices simultaneously, each with a draw of up to 125VAC/0.5A
or 24VDC/1A . Each relay has two outputs, allowing them to be used to switch between two devices or
to start/stop a single device.
Selectable TTL voltage
The USB-I/O-16D8R design allows to select the TTL voltage level as either 3.3V ‘1’ (LVTTL) or 5V ‘1’
(Standard TTL).
32/64 Bit operating systems
Compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems using 32 and 64 bit architecture.
Software CD, USB cable and IDC
cable assemblies included
A CD containing a programing instructions for Linux and windows operating systems (32 and 64 bit
systems) and a Windows GUI program containing an API DLL com object is included with the USBI/O-16D8R as is a 2.7 ft USB cable and 1 ft 26 and 34 wire IDC cable assemblies.
