Anyone ever find out a source for the USB IO module that Tormach uses? So far I've only found one that's similar and it might be possible to make it work, but it's a definite might.

Looking at how PP communicates with the board there are Tormach specific strings in it.

I would tend to believe that the board is either custom tormach or a commercial board that has been customized by Tormach.

it send the command VE and gets back two values, r and data, data contains the "Tormach I/O"

this is contained in the usbio.py file

A bit of recoding in the usbio.py probably could make this work with other boards.

the other thing you can do is you can map in the hal file I/O directly. i did this for 4 outputs as a test

At one time (last year) the IO module was a CP2102 with 4 relays attached.
