Measurement Computing CIO-PDISO16 Digital Output

CIO-PDISO16 Digital Output block (not recommended)


Simulink® Real-Time™ Library of Drivers No Longer Recommended for Use


The CIO-PDISO16 has two independent connectors. Each connector has 8 relay driven digital input lines.

Use a separate driver block for each connector.

Block Parameters

Number of Channels

Enter a number between 1 and 8 to select the number of digital output lines used with this connector. This driver does not allow the selection of individual digital output lines.


From the list, choose either 1 (nearest to backplate) or 2 (farthest from backplate) to select the connector used.

Sample time

Enter the base sample time or a multiple of the base sample time (-1 means sample time is inherited).

Base address

Enter the base address of the board. It is important that this entry corresponds to the DIP switch settings on the board. For example, if the base address is 300 (hexadecimal), enter


The Wait-State jumper has to be in the off position.

The remaining switch and jumper settings do not influence the running of the Simulink Real-Time software.
