There are a few things that you need to know before activating the IO within the PowerVision software.
- The types of IO and the amount of IO differ depending on the hardware.
- You can view a given hardware’s IO compliment by clicking on the Connections Tab.
- You can view the specific pinout for any given hardware by clicking on View Pinout in the upper right side of the Connections Tab.
During this class we will be assigning:
- 1 Digital Output

You should have a page that looks like this:
