< 0.5 = relay off
≥ 0.5 = relay on

Block Parameters

Channel vector

Enter numbers between 1 and 8 to select the digital output lines to drive. This driver allows the selection of individual digital output lines in arbitrary order. The number of elements defines the number of digital lines used.

For example, to use all of the digital outputs, enter


Number the lines beginning with 1 even if this board manufacturer numbers the lines beginning with 0.


From the list choose either A or B. The Port parameter defines which port is used for this driver block. Each port has a maximum of 8 digital outputs. More than one output block can be used with the same port, but each output channel can only be controlled by one block at a time.

Sample time

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

PCI slot (-1:autosearch)

If only one board of this type is in the target computer, enter -1 to locate the board.

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 [BusNumber,SlotNumber].

To determine the bus number and the PCI slot number, type:

tg = slrt;
getPCIInfo(tg, 'installed')
