10AIO-16 Sixteen Logic I/O Card for "A" Mainframes
This is an "A Card"-sized version of the Model 10BIO-16 Universal Logic I/O Card, and is for use in "A-sized" System 10 mainframes (ONLY). Functions and specifications of the 10AIO-16 are identical to those of the 10BIO-16, except that:
- the 10AIO-16 may be used only in "A-sized" mainframes—i.e., only in members of the "10KU," "10K1/10K2," and "10K4T" mainframe families
- it employs the standard 20-pin "10A" I/O Connector (instead of the special connector used by the 10BIO-16)
- it is initialized by means of the A SLOT (ASL) command
- the maximum current of the Logic Reference Supply is 50 mA, total. For this reason, a full-capacity relay board used with the 10AIO-16 may require its own external power supply.
