The PCI-DIO48H has two 8255 chips (1,2). Each chip has three ports (A,B,C). Each port has a maximum of 8 digital I/O lines that can be configured as inputs or outputs.
Use a separate driver block for each port. To configure the port as input, use the digital input driver block.
I/O Module Input
Block Output Data Type
TTL low = 0.0
Enter numbers between 1 and 8 to select the digital input lines used with this port. This driver allows the selection of individual digital input lines in arbitrary order. The number of elements defines the number of digital lines used.
For example, to use all of the digital inputs for one port, enter
Number the lines beginning with 1 even if this board manufacturer numbers the lines beginning with 0.
From the list choose either
C. The I/O board has two
8255 chips with 3 ports. The Port parameter defines
which port of the 8255 chip is used for this driver block. Each port has
a maximum or 8 digital lines that can be configured as inputs or outputs
depending on which driver block is chosen. In each case, one block is
required for each port.

Chip parameter defines which of the two 8255
chips is used.

If two or more boards of this type are in the target computer, enter the bus number and the
PCI slot number of the board associated with this driver block. Use the format
