Hey Dave,
I'm not having the best luck with the 2 that I have.
I will wait for Mr. Duncan to respond before making any final determinations.

Here is a problem I am having with the 2nd one.

No, two C1's and I just ordered a C1G. The first board looked like it was a proto type. No sockets for the IC's.
The second board failed while I was trying to get the Auto Z  zero working. The chips that were sent did
not match up with my board, so I still don't have a machine running. I just ordered a C1G to get the machine
running while I try and sort out the problems with the second C1.

Olf, I'm really not sure what to use now but Hood speaks highly of the PMDX 122 and I've also heard many good things about the Boards from Bob Campell. These seem a little overkill for what I want as I was hoping to get away with a lower price as I'm not hooking up any motor drivers to the board that I'd be getting, I just want more I/O s for relays and other gadgets  :)

Thanks,
Dave

Dave
 Have a look at the PoKey, just got one a few days ago and so far its looking good :) Its nt a breakout but will be very handy for lots of extra I/O
 It is a USB device that can be used to connect 55 digital Inputs or Outputs, five of which can be analogue, at the moment though Art doesnt have the analogue done in the plugin but if there is enough interest he will do it.
 I have been messing around with it for the last few days, had a 12 position rotary switch hooked to it and made a small Brain up so I can set the FRO from 1% to 150% in 12 stages, it works great. If the Analogue part of the plugin is done a Pot could be used instead to give infinite FRO and only use up one of the Inputs. Each pin can be set up as either an Input, an Output or even a keystroke.

Meant to give a link and also mention that until 10th Aug Mach users get a 15% discount and free shipping. I have no affiliation at all with the product, just saw mention of it on the Yahoo group and decided to give it a try for a pendant I am making for the new mill.

and the Discount CODE: MACHCNC16

Hey now, that's very interesting. It was a bit more than I'd hoped but jeez, look at all those I/O's!!!  :D 

Thanks as always!

You would have to check up to see if there is enough power for relays, not really read the manual so not quite sure, I just saw it as an excellent board for connecting up external switches etc
