USB Controlled Relay Board or general output
Alright. I am building myself a USB controlled board that will allow me to control a number of outputs.
I was then thinking how Red wanted to control all her LED's and I though, "self, why not make it both a relay/general purpose board that can be programmed to be dynamic with light shows and such". I was doing this for other reasons, but I only need a few relays controlled.
I guess what I would like to ask is this:
Is anybody else interested in a USB controlled relay board? If so how many relays or general outputs would you like? Would you want the relays themselves included (because they are very pricey in the grand scheme of things)?
I ask because I can get away with my project with around 4 or 5. Now some people might want more.
I can have either 1 to 8 outputs with a very simple board design.
I can have between 1 and 32 with a relatively simple design.
I can have 1 to 96 with a relatively difficult design.
So, how much stuff do you need control over if anybody is even interested in this?
I saw a few threads started about people making relay boards, and I saw a few completed ones, but I want my own! Does anybody else want one too?
