PostSubject: Newbie question about LPT settings   2/10/2006, 23:40

Hi there
I have just downloaded the demo of your software and is seriously considdering buying this product - do however have a couple of questions

We plan on using the Parallel port for the sensors building our own cable - this is quite simple, but my question is - if i buy the power relay hardware from dentronics will i have to connect the sensors to this as well or are they using different pins? (building a 4 lane track and want to have sensors + power control)?

Looking forward to hearing from you

Dontronics box use only output pin (2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).
To use sensor on parallel port with dontronics box for power control you have to make a special cable that separate input pin (pin used by the sensor) and output pin.
I make it for my home track and it's very simple to make a Y cable (male and two female) , one female taking pin 10,12,13,15,25 (for sensor) and other female taking pin 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 for dontronicx box.
