The USB Digital I/O Commander ("Digio") allows you to set digital
and read digital inputs. In addition, it allows you to specify an
action to occur when a specific trigger input or set of inputs change
For instance, you can configure the software to send a pre-determined
message to a recipient when input bits 0 to 3 equal the value
Or, configure to play a wav sound when bit 5 is "high". You can
this and much more. With 8 different notification types, the

can now use UsbMicro U451 relay interface boards with our
Digio software. Like the standard U401 and U421 interfaces, the
U451 includes general-purpose I/O signals which may be configured as
inputs or outputs. In addition, there are two onboard relays
which may be controlled automatically by Digio per your event trigger
assignments. Relay control gives your application the power and
flexibility to easily activate high-current (up to 2A) external devices
such as lights, motors, cameras, and more!

USB Digital I/O Commander gives you full control of digital I/O for any
application including robotics, industrial control, or hobby I/O.
The heart of the product is the USB I/O interface. This module
the interface between your I/O and the PC computer. Taking
advantage of USB technology, the system is easily expanded to suit your
needs. A single USB module provides 16 I/O signals, configurable
in any combination of inputs and outputs. If you need more
simply add additional modules.
Peripheral Interface (SPI) is a protocol allowing a master device
communicate with many slaves. Now, USB Digio 4.0 gives you access
to these devices with a few clicks of the mouse. No
firmware, or programming knowledge required. Great for rapid
and proof-of-concept. (Requires USBmicro U4x1 USB interface).

you need a networked solution for accessing your digital I/O? Digio
for Local Area Networks (LAN) offers the same functionality as the
single-user product with the same U4x1 compatibility. But Digio
LAN goes a step beyond, allowing networked computers to monitor
