Chart or table showing all I/O and related capabilities


Recommended Posts

Seems quite a few of the I/O are different from each other, i.e. not all DO can be set up the same.

It would be nice to have some sort of chart or table in the help file showcasing the possibilities for each I/O

Currently, even the PWM rates are different for different pins.

Aux out 1 will allow up to 200000 Hz pulse frequency (I assume this is an error, otherwise it could make one hell of am analog out with an RC filter)

Aux out 2, 3, 4, 5 will go to 500Hz

Aux out 6,7,8 will go to 300Hz

Ironically the unused coil drivers cannot be configured for PWM out, but can be set up for a PWM test up to 300Hz.

Hi John,

No, Aux 1 can not really do 200,000 Hz. Like the other Aux channels, PCLink should restrict their maximum rate. Thanks for pointing out the problem.

Aux 1 to 4 are hardware driven, so can do a higher rate than the other Aux channels. The maximum rate we (normally!) enable Aux 1 to 4 to do is 500 Hz, and the other Aux channels 300Hz.

Above these rates we find that the accuracy starts to fall off.
