USB-6525

Hi, I am curious if it is possible to control the USB-6525 relay module via command line calling an executable. For instance, from a command line: c:\>usb6525.exe -p:0 -r:1#1  (so it turns on port 0, relay 1, or something like that). I would like to send commands like these to turn on and off the different relays on this device by sending commands from a command line. If anyone has some sample code, or an .exe to do this, it would be very much appreciated.

Pretty hard to provide an example when you don't say what programming environment you are planning on using. If you are using LabVIEW, then there is a shipping example called CommandLine.vi. From there, look at the DAQmx digital output examples for how to create a task and then do a DAQmx Write.

Dennis, I'll try to clarify. Can the USB-6525 be controlled using a LabView created executable (not using .vi because I want to run and control the USB-6525 on laptop without LabView) to turn on say, relay 1 on this device? And consequently, a separate program to turn relay 1 off? I would like to call a .exe file that will turn on/off a relay if possible.

You can create an that will accept command line arguments like the example or you can create an exe that you can control just from the front panel.
