The MicroDAQ SRL-72A is a general purpose digital I/O product which communicates to the host PC via a RS-232 or RS-485 (dependent on model) serial connection. Based on the industry standard 82C55 PPI device. They Feature 72 TTL level digital I/O lines. The I/O can be programmed in banks of 8 as inputs or outputs.

Two interface versions are available for the serial MicroDAQ range, these include RS-232 models and RS-485 models. The RS-232 models are best suited for short distances (up to 30 metres) or for use with hand held PC�s such as PDA�s.

The RS-485 models allow for long distance data transmission (up to 1200 metres). These RS-485 models are ideally suited for process control applications in a plant or industrial environment, which require long cable runs.

An easy-to-use configuration panel allows for easy setup of the devices. Drivers are provided for the most popular operating systems, as well as for the WindowsCE� family of products including PocketPC2002 and PocketPC2003. This support allows the serial MicroDAQ range to be controlled directly from a palm held PC with a serial port. Each unit is supplied with a WindowsCE API and control panel which is downloaded from a PC to the handheld device. Embedded Visual C++ and embedded Visual Basic examples are supplied.

This digital I/O product is ideal for use in the connection between a computer and the outside world. Allowing computer programs not only to sense real world events, but control them as well. Applications include man-machine interfacing, driving high power loads, sensing switch contact closures and much more.
