I'm trying to select a good IO module.
My goal is industrial control: sensors and push buttons for inputs and ssr's and lamps for outputs.
I have VB 6.0 (not professional) I'm looking for about 16 I and 16 O. . . once recieving the module, typically, are there any libraries or modules that need to be installed . . . or is it relatively 'write code, plug, and go'?
Apart from hardware drivers, yes, it is code, plug and use. You will be interacting with the drivers or "readers to convert the data, so I suggest you read up some more on byte coding, binary, hexadecimal etc coding.
