BasicX Relay Controller

Started by maxpandemonium June 3, 2006
Hello all.

Is it possible to use the bx24 as a relay controller? I'm afraid I
don't know enough about the bx24 to know if it would be useful in this
role.

I would like the bx24 to recieve commands from a PC via serial
connection to control 16 relays, connected to solenoids.

Thank you for your advice.





What are you controling with the relays??
I used Tip120 to turn on the relays for higher current and voltage.
Here is a link for a person that is controling a motor.
Just put the relay where the motor is.

I hope that this helps I am teaching myself too.
