USB-PDSIO8 - Used as GPI/O Device on Windows PC


MikeRKARE

Question

We're using a USB-PDSIO8 as a GPI/O device in our broadcast environment. It triggers a command in a software program and provides status using a relay output.  We had to upgraded the server that this is running on and previous engineers didn't provide any documentation as to the configuration or setup.

The device has power, but the USB led is solid green. We have two of these, one on a primary server, and another on the backup. Fortunately I had my team replace the backup first. This is the one in question. On the primary, the USB led is flashing. Indicating activity. I don't see any obvious services or applications running to control or read status of the PDSIO8.  Does anyone have any idea what I'm missing?

Hello,

You probably only need to install and run the InstaCal utility. 

Best regards,
John

InstaCal has been installed. When I provide a signal to one of the inputs, how do I determine what action the PC takes?

Hello,

I am sorry, but I don't understand the question. I am under the impression that you have working software and that the previous unit stopped working. If the new unit is recognized by the InstaCal program, then your existing software should be able to control it. We also have a free software called DAQami that can be used to test it. 

Best regards,
John
