You can set rpm for leds.
and you can make hardware
its realy easy.

Quick reminder maybe: use resistors or you 'll fry the leds

just a simple (2in1) question:

Resistors value (Ohm)?

LED specifications?

thanks in advance

probabily not... because, normaly, the converter can't redirect all the 25 pins from the usb port... i think...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LED

see the leds specification i used standerd leds i know i over powered with 5V but low A and i use without resistors

2.
i calculated if you want to use resistors i think 500-560 ohm need it, but i dont know

usb version is far more complex than you think... so don't even try if you don't know how-to

Having a USB version would require the use of a USB controller chip and a PIC, which would then require a bit of code written and a £20 PIC writer, in the long run it may be cheaper (and easier) to get a parallel port chip for your computer

Indeed, it's not that easy to work with USB.
Gonna order a LPT pci card orso, that should do the trick.

Looks nice... considered making it a little "straighter", mounting it on a box and then on the back of your wheel where they'd be in RL?

I tried to get it working with an PCI LPT card, no luck.

The program is recieving the Outgauge packets from LFS but thats it,
There is no output, i clicked On and then SET.

OS: Windows XP Pro 32bit
LPT Card: sunix 4008t

i uploaded new version of this.. try with that
do you have xp or vista?
first run InstallDriver.exe and restart your PC.
or try search lpt port controller software

i saw on the internet...need to set lpt port to "ECP+EPP" mod

I did such a thing via usb years ago.
I used this usb-chip http://www.codemercs.com/index.php?id=64&L=1.
It comes with a dll that makes the programming quite easy.
I directly connected 16 Leds to it


Wrote a little app the took the data from outgauge and lit some leds .
