This PC printer (parallel) port relay board provides independently programmable real-time control for each of the eight onboard mains rated relays.
Relay outputs can be used to automatically turn On/Off lights, motors & other devices around the home, office, laboratory or factory. The software interface is compatible with Windows 7 (32-bit)/Vista/XP/ME/2000/NT/9x and allows you to program and save an infinite number of On/Off sequences. Alternatively, you can write your own software with a DLL from http://logix4u.net/parallel-port.
NB If this board is powered up and connected to the computer, all of the relays will momentarily turn on when the PC first boots up. If this is a problem, please look at our 8-Channel Serial Port Isolated IO Relay Controller instead.
