    also is it possible to use the sysoffsetlist from the pm systems and put it in the phidgets folder to assign certain switches ?
    I got an on-off switch, do i still need 5 volt to attach to it ?

    Hi Phil,

    Yes you can add PM offsets to the Phidgets program. All that you have to do is run the Phidgets editor program and put in the needed offset information. You will have to work with it for a little bit to get a good feel for how the offsets work, as I did.

    Also, you will need some sort of power source for the switch to function properly. Without it, phidgets will not be able to detect when circuit is open or closed.

    hello,
    where can i find that phidgets editor program ? I already installed the phidgets software and i have a 0/16/16 card?
    it want to install a switch for the Master Light test, when you start up Pm systems, there are sveral switches on the right of the overhead. The offset is 0 x 560D when pointing on that switch, but i don't know how to put or make a complete file to put in the fs variables in the phidgets folder.
    Phil.
