PIC-113 USB I/O Controller

The following is the information for PIC-112 (obsolete and is no longer in production).

Product

Product: USB+RS232 I/O Controller
Code: PIC-113

 Description

PIC-113 is a USB-connected I/O controller which allows you to control on/off, or control/drive external hardware devices. It has inputs which allow the interface to sensors or a simple contact switch. Command can be sent via the USB (virtual com port) or RS232 port by opening a communication port through your software. Communication stream can be opened using the standard library from the typical C#, C++, Visual Basic, Java, etc… programming language.

We are able to customise the device for up to 4x input, 4x output. Analog input, PWM output can also be customised to your need. Proprietary RS232 protocol can also be implemented through the RS232 port. For ethernet version, please refer to our other product PIC-112 Ethernet I/O controller.
