    Best Output Card?

    Hi all,

    I have been looking at various cards for LEDs, and I'm just not sure which one to get. I mostly need one that can read from multiple offsets per output. I have found an LUA script that can diguise an LVar as an offset, so I am ready to purchase!

    For me, Phidgets. Not the cheapest but very easy to configure and use

    Hi Avro748

    Take a look at OpenCockpits USBOutput card as well.
    Together with SIOC you'll able to make the "logic" you need.

    OpenCockpits USBOutput is good, as it supports high voltage and current operations.

    However, Phidgets is better since it allows you to assign different voltages and currents to each individual output (Dual brightness leds in the overhead)

    Re: Best Output Card?

    I do know about Phidgets and it's simple interface. I also know about Opencockpits cards and their endless capabilities. I would get the Opencockpits one, except that the shipping charge to get it to where I live would bring the price close to the price of the Phidgets and Ruscool types. Ruscool is out of the question, mainly because it can't read from multiple offsets per output. Can Phidgets do that? If it can, then that will be the card I will get. If not, then I will get Opencockpits.

    Re: Best Output Card?

    Do you mean FSUIPC offset? It's capability of software router (SIOC for OpenCockpits cards). About Phidgets, variable voltages per output - it sounds great, but I'm not sure about software to use with it. OC for sure is the best choice for beginners.

    Re: Best Output Card?

    Yes. What I mean is: If offset A is active AND offset B is active, turn LED on.

    Re: Best Output Card?

    Ah. I don't believe Phidgets can do that but neither can OC. It surely is the software (SIOC or in my case Prosim737) that takes care of this kind of logic ?

    SIOC will do all work for you - you will just need to write small script with logic you need.
