Which Contec cards work with the plugin and which don't
« on: November 20, 2010, 02:58:37 PM »
Like the title say, is there a list of which ones do and which ones don't????


Thanks,
Mike
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

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.

Hi Smurph

can we use the Contec PIO to drive the motor? step and direction? not the parallel port from my pc. want to use it for many of my machine.

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,

can we use this card for MPG or Encoder as input?

No, it is for I/O only.  :(

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.
