See Data Translation Inc.  They have drivers for a companion product to
HP-VEE called DT-VEE.  They have a wide range of PC data acquisition
boards.  Their rep in the Netherlands is:

Hartogs Ingenierursbureau B.B.
Stolwijkstraat 33
3079 DN Rotterdam
Tel: 010-47 95 700

There is also another company that responded here a few weeks ago, but I
their name.  They also have data acq products with VEE drivers.  Perhaps
will contact you directly if they see this.

There are also options of using some of the more modern driver protocol
to talk to these boards: VISA, VTL, SICL and lots of other acronyms.  Beware

that because this is not a single-vendor solution, you have to be very
when selecting products and drivers.

Good luck-

VRF: Dig & Anal IO & timers.

A question just came up here:

People in my department needs to read some digital statuslines,
analogue voltages, drive some digital controls and maybe an analogue
They also need to measure timerelations in, let's say, 0.1 sec
accuracy. All via their PC of course.
Currently they are looking to hard- and software from NI.
I suggested them to look to HP-VEE (what else!).

My question is: will it be difficult to exercise the AT-MIO boards
from NI with HP-VEE? Is there any experience concerning this?
Or is there a good alternative for this hardware?
Any good suggestion is welcome.
With kind regards,
