Velleman Project Kits Range

The K8000 PC Interface Board SELF-ASSEMBLY electronic kit enables a computer to communicate with the outside world and be used in control applications and enable control functions to be carried out.

It excels in its simplicity of use and installation. The card is connected in a very simple way to the printer port (there is no need to open up the computer). Likewise there is no need to install an extra printer port, even if a printer is to be used. This can be connected to the card in the usual manner. Connection to the computer is optically isolated, so that damage to the computer from the card is not possible.

The card is controlled in a simple way using Turbo Pascal, QBasic, Visual Basic, Delphi, C++ (to use with MS-DOS, Win3.11, Win95, 98, ME, NT, XP, 2000). These procedures are pre-programmed and are provided along with a number of test and example programs on the diskette supplied.

The card itself has 16 optically isolated digital connections, which can be freely chosen as either inputs or outputs (e.g. 6 inputs and 10 outputs) according to how they are set up by the user. Furthermore, the card has 9 analogue outputs, of which one is high precision, and 4 analogue inputs. If this capacity is not sufficient for a particular application then up to 4 cards can be connected together (1 master and 3 slaves), such that an enormous potential exists. The card can be used with many of our other kits e.g. Relay Output Module (for K8006) KIT (K8027).

As Velleman UK Main Dealer we can provide full support for your purchase if required.
