USB controller

Features

The USB Interface connects a PC with a Braille line assembled with metec Braille cells. For Flat20, Braille Line or B11, B12, P16 Braille lines with separate 200V power supply. Drivers for 32 Bit (Win98 ... Windows 7) and 64 Bit (Windows 7) are available.
The application communicates with the device over the metec BD.dll (data sheet USB Software).

The drivers have a digital signature and are needed for the first installation.

In addition, the power supply for the piezo actuators a DC/DC converter is integrated which generates the power directly from 5 V. With driver and DLLs for control via PC.
