Parallel Port's Currents and Voltages

Post by snippets » Sat Dec 11, 2010 3:10 pm

the software side is really smooth:
I wish you can help me on the hardware side.

Please answer:
1. OS Compatibility - is this applicable to WinVista and Win7 ?
2. Output Voltage and Current of the Output pins.
3. Required/Safe Voltage and Current inputs of the input pins.

We have outputs(data) pins and inputs(status) pins.

Thanks. :birth:

sorry, I cant help on the hardware side. I only ported the driver to x64, I didn't write it and I don't know an awful lot about parallel ports. Maybe someone else here can help, else you might like to try the Logix4U forum (original author).

However as to compatibility, InpOutx64 (my port) v1.2.0.0 and later is fully compatible with Vista , 2008, 2008 R2 and windows 7 in both x86 and x64 mode. The DLL contains signed x64 drivers.

Thanks,
Phil

PCI expansion cars should be OK but I cant be sure as I've never tried them. USB parallel ports seem to be a no go.
