If a robot model is connected to the computer, a motor can be switched on with the LOGO command SWITCHON. After that, for example, a robot arm can set in motion. The SWITCHOFF command stops the motor and the movement of the arm. There are commands to check whether a switch on the model is pressed or not. With the commands to query analog inputs of the model it is possible to measure the brightness or the temperature. An additional component, a so-called interface, is required for connecting computers to the robot model. The 64-bit version of WIN-LOGO 3.0 currently supports the following interfaces: Older interfaces, which are connected to the printer interface of the PC (parallel port): Multiface (Knobloch), Fischertechnik interface Modern interfaces, which are connected via USB: Fischer technology Robo interface, Fischer technology IO extension, Fischer technology RF data link, Fischer technology Sound and lights, Fischer technology LT controller, Knobloch Robo Connect box, Knobloch education line: CrossRoads, Knobloch educationLine: TrafficLights, Knobloch educationLine: Signal, Knobloch educationLine: easy pH. These interfaces require files which, for copyright reasons, must be downloaded from the Fischertechnik web pages. The older interfaces for the printer interface can also be connected to the Knobloch Robo Connect Box and thus be used via USB.
