Hello all. I just received a relay controller for a project at work and am struggling. I am brand new to this so please bare with me and my lack of knowledge.
I am trying to use the relay controller to act as a remote for a DC power supply. The system was originally written in LabVIEW and it powers a fully remote adjustable power supply. I am using a “dumb” power supply that is fixed output. I simply need to connect 2 leads to complete the circuit. I am aware that this relay is not for low power applications, and if I am unable to get it to work this way I can switch power if it comes to that.
As simple as it sounds, I am unable to accomplish this. I realize I will have to change the LabVIEW function, and I have attempted to load the drivers per the instructions. None of them are selectable.
Question 1. Will this relay driver work with Windows 7? Unfortunately I am stuck with Win7 and it cannot be upgraded per contractual requirements.
Question 2. Is there any default functions built into the relay controller? I have never used a base station at all and am wondering if it’s a requirement or just a way to fully take advantage of the hardware?
I’m sure there will be many more questions as my project moves on.
Thank you in advance.
