Any of the PIO(PCI) series cards should work.  Oly the PIO-16/16T(PCI)H has been tested.

Basically, here are the list of likely candidates:

16 input / 16 output
PIO-16/16T(PCI)H - TTL (5v input/open collector output to 30v)
PIO-16/16L(PCI)H - Low voltage (12v - 24v input/output)
PIO-16/16H(PCI)H - High voltage (24v - 48v input/output)

32 input / 32 output
PIO-16/16T(PCI)H - TTL (5v input/open collector output to 30v)
PIO-16/16L(PCI)H - Low voltage (12v - 24v input/output)
PIO-16/16H(PCI)H - High voltage (24v - 48v input/output)

The "bi-directional" cards are not supported by the PIO plugin.

Sorry, no.  That is not an option.  It's an I/O plugin only.  Have a look at the Smooth Stepper for a nice stepper motor controller that doesn't use the parallel port.

Hi Stave,

No, it is for I/O only.  Sad

It depends on the current capacity of the card and the specs of the relay coils.  I have no idea what the specs of the card is.  The Contec website probably has that information.
