Analog Discovery 2 as cheap PLC, i need single NOT connection


Hello everyone,

i am very new to the analog discovery and i wanted to ask if i can use the digital i/o like a plc and connect one input inverted to another one?

Which means as fast as the input sees a high pulse it should give out a low pulse on another output..


Is that possible with 24V volt levels if i use optocouplers or solid state relays for insulation?

Hi @Meins321,

The Analog Discovery 2 digital inputs are based on 3.3V CMOS logic with 5V tolerant inputs; there is some more details available in the Digital I/O section in the reference manual here: https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/instrumentation/analog-discovery-2/reference-manual, so you would need to get the 24V signals to much lower values.

That being said, I do not see a way to do this with a single pin. It may be possible to set this up with two possible pins, though I'm not seeing an easy way to do this. @attila, for when you get back from vacation, is setting up an inverting output something that can be done?
