Control Universal Extended CUBE Range

Over time they developed an extensive range of interface cards in the CUBE format principally for the laboratory/industrial market.

 I have found very little information on these products, this list is largely taken from the 1987 Catalogue:


AMP-IO an input conditioning/output amplifier card for use with CUBAN-12B Control Universal AMP-IO

CU-BUSEX a bus extender card

Control Universal CU-BUSEX
CUBE Doublestore a disk controller and EPROM/RAM storage card Control Universal CUBE Doublestore
CUBE-ICE Control Universal CUBE-ICE
CUBE GPIB IEEE IEEE-488 Interface for driving laboratory test and measurement equipment Control Universal CUBE GPIB IEEE-488
CU-MEM Selecta 8x byte wide sockets that can accept each up to 32Kbytes - up to 256Kbytes of EPROM or 64Kbytes of RAM in 16K pages.  Multiple cards allowing up to 1Mbyte in 64 pages. Control Universal CU-MEM Selecta
CUBE Optoisolator provides 16 bidirectional optically isolated digital input/outputs Control Universal Optoisolator
