Reaching the real world

I have just written a python module to program the M232 measurement unit 
from elv.
It has 8 digital I/O and 6 analog ports (0-5V). Works fine, although it 
is a little bit slow (0,2 s to measure)
Furthermore the digital ports do not have enough power to switch a relay 
directly, I had to do it with additional transistors.
It controls my heating together with a python program an a eletric motor 
/ gearbox and some sensors.

Type M232 into the search field.


If you are intersted in the python code, just drop a note.
