FSBUS boards (pcbs)

Recommended Posts

Can you list the known sources that produce and sell fsbus boards?I can make mine myself, but am not as good as professionals, and they always need consistent adjustements and are just a decent hassle for me.So if i can just buy the boards i'd be very very happy :-hah

Would be handy if someone could give a +/- price for each of the fsbus type cards if you opt for:pcb's from cockpitsonick and components from conrad ...I have calculated what Photon would cost me and I end up with 355 euro or 419 dolar ( 1 main card, 1 input card (128 connections), 3 output card (24 segment displays or 192 leds), 1 software + shipment to Belgium )Now that I know it's possible to write your own logic software to play with FS I/O vars and Photon I/O vars (same thing as CCC but outside the interface software) .. Photon does sound very interesting. It has very compact cards and seems fairly easy to use + very good and friendly feedback from Scott.

Comparative of prices with IOCards :Over USB :1 USB expansion Card (4 analogic Inputs)+ 1 Master Card (64 Outputs + 72 inputs) + 2 Multiplexed Displays Cards (32 Digits) + shipment to Belgium (2 day)= 177 Eur Over LPT port 138 Eur.

Sounds niceBut as long as I don't have this option like CCC ...I don't need an exact copy of CCC for any other interface. All I need is the option to play with FS I/O variables AND with the interface I/O variables within my own written program in VB.NetThat would give me the same end result as working with CCC, only I have 1 more program running. At this moment I am very much able to play with FS I/O variables already from VB.Net so if I could get the I/O to a .Net program of IOCards that would be interesting.Going via network, like you say IOCP = FSUIPC+WIDEFS doesn't give me much joy because at the moment I'm not using widefs. All I use is wideview, nothing more. No need for me to link other programs to the main server.At this time I am sure that I can do what I want with Photon and FSBus. Not sure about IOCards though.

besides, 72 inputs is not enough I'm afraid.with Photon I have 128.ok to make it possible for you to count for me the price of IOcards:I need:no LPT connection IF possible100+ inputs19 segment displays70+ single ledsOk, with what I wrote I would order from Photon I don't get 70+ leds connected but I can order 1 extra output card any time I want. Not that expencive to back-order.

I know I have "marketed" FSBUS in the past, mostly as an alternative to expensive commercial solutions, but IOCards is also a freeware / hobby project, so there is no need to fight for users - I hope you understand my point :)//Tuomas

I think now, free projects is a real solutions more cheap. My message with IOCard cost is a comparative. I not think is bad. What is the problem ?You sell Photon cards ? ;-)

I think chance is bigger that you get your stuff than your money back. It seems quite clear to me that IF this guy hasn't spent our money on other things, then he hasn't calculated the risk that people would want their money back.Immagine you start a webshop as a non commercial person. Orders you make don't come quick. People start to worry and some ask their money back. But you have spent all their money on the orders you made. Now would you have ( 4 people want money back .. say average order is 150 euro = 600 euro ) 600 euro to give back to those people from your own money ? So it's quite understandable that Pepper rather not react on those requests and hopes to get the goods asap and then send you your order anyway. Maybe then you won't want your money back. I think that's the situation at the moment.That or he is ripping us off .. but then he wouldn't be lying to us still I think .. that would be VERY weird.So I think: either your goods, or no money at all.

No, I dont sell anything :)Nothing wrong with IOCards, I am probably going to look into them a bit myself too, to check out how they work etc - we have used FSBUS since thats what we found, and it does its job nicely - but it does not hurt to keep ones eyes open for good ideas.The "problem" which is not anything big to worry about, was more like the topic - the original poster asked about fsbus boards. But lets not worry too much, maybe I just over reacted, sorry.//Tuomas

>>That's not a problem of language but a problem of fiability>...>I just hope to get my order of to get back my money ...>So AVOID absolutely this website >I don't want you remake this bad experience>and you just loose your moneyWell 6 months is really a lot!How did you pay?With paypal you could ask for refound within 1 month...Maybe something to keep in mind for the next time.The language is a problem when you think of disclaimers and selling details which you are not able to understand, not even know.It's important.I hope you can solve your dispute.oh i remember that ebay suggest an online dispute solving company if there are problems between sellers and buyers.At the moment i don't remember the name, but i don't think it's limited to the ebay ambient.Maybe you can try it.BR

No PayPall for me (have no creditcard) and I think most others did bank transfer as well. Most people that ordered are from NL or Belgium so ...Either way, I know someone that heard from a friend that studies commercial law in NL whom told him that we have every right on our side. We have the confirm e-mail from the order and we have our bank notes to show that we did pay and did agree to this contract.So I suggest we all wait for Mr Van Erp to come back from holiday in Italy and then see if he has the box (sits at german customs atm.) with him. If so, there will be delivery quite soon. If not, then I suggest we ask him to pay the german customs as soon as possible. If he refuses to do so, we will take legal action against him.So within 1 week from now we should know. Either delivery or legal action. We should get our money back then.

>So I suggest we all wait for Mr Van Erp to come back from>holiday in Italy You sure he's gonna go back? ;)You know, many people refuse to go back to their grey life after coming back from Italy ;)They especially refuse to again eat their boring food :-hahSo i'd not be surprised if he changes his residence to italy :(

Hey, unlike my neighbour at my dorm here, I would not be able to eat pasta every single day :(No disrespect to Italy and it's "quisine" .. my opinion: the french are the best cooks. Then I like my own contry food (cuz of habbit I know) then the eastern.Best meal ever I had in Strasburgh.;)

You can always "learn" ;)Hehe, everyone has his tastes :)Anyway french are good, no joke, but italians have that little bit more i think :)Probably because pasta,pizza,lasagna and many many other things are just italian matters, much like mafia i'm afraid :(I always wonder why, in different nations, people are convinced that how they cook pasta is the ABSOLUTE RIGHT ITALIAN WAY...Never found anyone cooking a real pasta!Never!

LOLthat's the problem I have with my current study.If you would be a doctor and you would tell me something, I would only be able to agree. You have studied it and I don't know nothing about it.I study multimedia & communication technology. Whatever I tell people, they always know better :(Either way, lets leave the citchen and get back to the garage for some cockpit-cooking ;)

Dear Phillip,I dont want to accuse P.Van Erp, the only thing I know is that I've prepaid 300 Euro many month ago with bank transfer and after many many many announce that "it will come next week" almost nothing.I've reordered by cockpitsonic and received it in 8 dayswith an invoice ...Even if the simcockpit component arrive in some months I can't wait one year for starting to go on with my project ...If it come finally I'll have some modules in double, useful if there's an electrical problem ...But understand that now I can't advise somebody to order by cockpitsonic...I know you're waiting tooLet's see what's happendBOB
