Example of using the DIN rail mounting kit
Contec’s CPI series HAT format cards, which extend the HAT specifications with multistage connectivity for general use, are available from April 2021.
In addition to the seven HAT sized boards currently in the CPI series, these three new models will further expand the range of measurement control applications for systems with varying number of I / O points and requiring the ability to handle a wide variety of signals.
In addition to easy DIN rail mounting, the new DIN rail mounting kit also allows a variety of other mounting methods, including wall and desk mounting.
Under the motto “Bringing the ease of PCs to FA”, Contec has been both a pioneer and an industry leader in PC-based measurement control systems since the introduction of the first personal computers. Contec reaffirms this commitment with the CPI series of Raspberry Pi HAT boards.
Push-type terminal block for easy wiring

Stacked connection up to 8 cards
Contec has extended the HAT specifications to include address ID configuration, which allows up to eight stacked cards to be connected.
Free downloadable APIs and sample Python-compatible programs
The Linux driver (API-TOOL for Linux) can be downloaded for free from the company’s website along with sample Python and GCC programs, allowing users to start programming immediately.
PLC compatible with PC expansion cards
Take advantage of API compatibility with Contec PCI Express, PCI, USB and Ethernet measurement control devices. Development assets can be reused across multiple platforms.
