This document describes the 7.1 release of the ioProject Basic and ioProject Professional software suites, including applications, installation, new features, and enhancements.

ioControl Commands Quick Reference Card

Quick reference card for using ioControl, including all standard ioControl commands and their OptoScript equivalents. ioControl is part of the ioProject software suite.

ioControl Command Reference

This command reference describes in detail all ioControl programming commands, or instructions. Use with form #1300, the ioControl User's Guide. ioControl is part of the ioProject software suite.

ioControl User's Guide

The ioControl User's Guide includes programming instructions and tips for developing control strategies to run on SNAP Ultimate controller/brains and SNAP-LCE controllers. ioControl is part of the ioProject software suite.

Message Queue Logger

This strategy and project demonstrate how to log messages from a controller's error (or "message") queue to the computer's hard drive. Having this information can make any troubleshooting needed easier.

The message log created provides a history of how your system runs under normal conditions. When problems occur, you will have a history of normal messages as well as error messages to help troubleshoot the cause.

The strategy and project were originally created in ioProject 7.0 Basic, and can be used with ioProject 7.0 and 7.1 as well as PAC Project 8.0, 8.1, and 8.2. It can also be used with Basic or Pro versions.
