Dear friends, I had this crazy idea:
I would like to create a Rev application to control the temperature of
my room. So, I need my application to import the temperature from a
thermometer and switch on/off the heater.
I found documentation for an affordable external device in internet : http://www.audon.co.uk/io8g.html
It says "Compatible with Profilab DAQ Software. " and "Can Utilize a
Simple Terminal Emulator to Control All Functions"
It says also: "Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers cause the USB device to
appear as an additional COM port available to the PC. Application
software can access the USB device in the same way as it would access
a standard COM port. "
Now, I have some questions:
Can we access the USB device using a standard COM ports from
Can we have Revolution to behave as a terminal Emulator to control
To summarize, do you think I can menage to control this external
device from Revolution?
Thanks a lot.
