255 channel USB I/O board UIO-333
Getting real world information through computer ports like USB & Serial RS232 port, is a very important part of computer automation. For this we require a card which can interact with various Sensors & switches and provide information to computer via its Serial RS232 or USB port.
USB I/O board UIO-333 from Iknowvations is such a board which has got high – up to 255 digital inputs & outputs – number of channels to cater for many industrial requirements. It can monitor ( & communicate with PC as well) up to 254 input channels at a high speed.This info can be processed & proper outputs can also be be made High or Low as per PC program.
The UIO-333 USB I/O board is also having up to 69 ADC channels having 12 bit accuracy. These channels can be utilized for monitoring various kind of sensors like Temperature, Pressure, Light, Distance, Speed etc.
The USB based UIO-333 can be connected to any USB port of PC or Laptop & appears as a COM port so it becomes very easy to communicate with it. Even a simple serial communication program like Hyper Terminal can be used to communicate with UIO-333. It has got many simple commands that can be used to do various tasks from the board.
All the simple commands are very easy to remember & are logically named. For example to make any channel high you have to send SH001, that is Set High channel no. 001. To make it low you have to send SL001. It is very easy. You can also build simple programs using any higher level language like VB, C++, C# or Delphi and use the UIO-333 USB I/O board for any kind of computer based automation projects.
The 255 channels are brought out in 5 different groups with 56 pin male connector for easy connections.On board power LED & user LED is also provided. A 500 mA re-settable fuse is also provided for protection from excessive current drain.
