LONWorks to PC interface


Thread Starter

Karlheinz Schwarz

Are there any simple PC interface cards (e.g., an USB interface) available to connect a PC with a LONWorks network device?

What is the minimum number of HW/SW components required to run a LONWorks network? Is there a special tool required to configure and run the network?

The services required are just to read and write values from/to LON network variables.
