I am just getting familiar with the OPTO-22 system and I am looking to design a system into an old (60 year old) parlor coach. I have SOME idea of how this is supposed to play out but I am stuck on several things that just need clarification. (Like learning to swim, kicking is important, arm motion is important-but telling the student to refrain from breathing when your head is underwater is important too)
I will need many I/O’s at the rear of the coach for lights, engine functions, temp sensing, air pressure measurements in the 10psi range, etc etc etc. Some of these will be simple ON/OFF inputs while others will be a variable thermister input and variable pressure inputs.
My question is this, when choosing an I/O module with a large number of I/O’s (say 32) can the INDIVIDUAL I/O ports be configured for the various varieties of inputs required of the application?
