    Phidgets 8/8/8 in RR

    I have the phidgets 8/8/8 board and i would like to use, besides the voltage/temp sensors, also the digital io portion, how can i do this in RR ? Also could a level change on a dig. input change say a red circle to a green circle in a skin ?

    Skippy76 added support for controlling the relays... regarding the digital IOs I have no info about it... I've always planned to get my hand on one of them boards to add everything it can do, but never did get one..

    dopehead: If you are able to provide the test for us (i.e. you are responsible for testing) I shall provide the update.

    IN theory I guess you may want a digital input to do 1 of two things:

    - as an indicator
    - as an action (e.g. if the state changes)

    What do you think? Also, Guino, are you ok with me implementing this?

    If you can implement it (have the means to), I'm all for it since I don't have the hardware myself..

    Ok,

    Dopehead: You need to give me some detailed requirements of what you want.

    Skippy, ok so what i would really like to see is generic support for the digital io ports of phidgets cards, like the analog sensor inputs via PHIDXX/f2c/volt commands, and then the ability to change the skin graphic according to the state of the input (true/false - on/off) Also controlling the digital output ports would be nice. I'm not sure what kind off info you need more than this, so i did a little screen dump to illustrate what would be nice.

    i found it ok. looks very simple, but somehow it needs some fundamental changes to implement i/o ports, now of course i have not seen the source for the relay functionality you have implemented yet, could be you did most of the work already :-)
