    Hello All,
    I've been bounced into a data acquisition job and presented my boss with
    a nice low-risk solution using an Agilent 34970a data acquisition mainframe,
    one of the cheapest on the market, but he seems to be ( won't say it )
    looking for super-cheap, and the best I can find are cards by Advantech etc.

    So, I want to use an Axiomtech relay muliplexer card with an Advantech 711
    digital and analog IO ISA card, principally for the digital output function
    to control the Axiomtech MUX.

    Here's the question! I am not a programmer, though I can achieve a little
    something in QBasic if necessary, so is the software interface and driver
    that comes with the 711 easy to use with minimal specialist knowledge. If I
    have to spend a week or more becoming an expert in computer architecture or
    writing reams of code it won't be worth my while.

    Anyone used the drivers?

    cheers,

    Andy.
