Note that 'card' is more common in the US, and 'board' in the UK, EXCEPT where it concerns boards fitted into, for example, a computer, where 'card' is commonly used in the UK too: VGA card, sound card, etc.

If this is a PCB (...board, note!) fitted to the valve, or at least, locally at its location, then in BE we'd probably be more likely to use 'board'.

Horses for courses, and of course your context will make it clear.
