MC4x pin descriptions

Rick 7 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 6 years ago 2

Adapting the MC4x modules on our first machines now, we had quite a struggle with the various pin characteristics (DIN Pull-up / Down, A15/17 suitable for relays on the MC3, et cetera). Such details can be found in the Specs of course, but it would be quicker & easier if we can see such details in IQAN Design, for example in the bottom-right corner when clicking an in- or output pin.


Thank you for your input, I know there are a lot of IQAN-MC4x users who struggled with the pin descriptions.

For IQANdesign 5 later this year, we are going to rework the block diagram, to include more details like highside/lowside and pull-up/pull-down.

We are also looking at updates for the IQAN-MC4x instruction book.


New block diagram introduced in 5.00 makes this more visible.

At the same time, there were also clarifications made in the IQAN-MC4x instruction book
