About to push the button on buying an IOCore2 to control a standard industrial VFD via it's analogue/contact closure inputs from QLab using OSC. The VFD has a 0-10v speed input and contact closure inputs for direction. So just checking it can defiantly do the following, after reading the manual :-

Act on an OSC speed cues e.g.

/VFD/Speed/127 would set an analogue output pin to approx 50%
/VFD/Stop  would turn off two GPIO port relays.
/VFD/RunLeft would turn on one GPIO relay and the other off
/VFD/RunRight would reverse the above two GPIO port ouputs

I'm not entirely sure is the OSC cues have to have specific formats or if I can choose by own labels? It doesn't really matter too much either way.

I am happy to read that you are interested by our IoCore, but reading your request I think this will not work.

From your description I understand that you need the IOcore to output contact closure and analogue signals.
Sadly it cannot output analogue signals.
It can received 0-10V analogue signals, and receive contact closure signals, but its outputs are only on relays, so no analogue output.
