LCDC is an application
that displays information on your LCD, VFD or PLED screen. At present
it is geared towards powering the Matrix Orbital products as these have
some great features like GPO (General purpose outputs, that can be use
to turn things on and off!) and Keypad connectivity. The number of things
that LCDC can do is expandable by Plugins that add functionality to the
application and hopefully new plugins will be added at various intervals
to add even more functionality. Also the Delphi 5 source code for a blank
plugin is available, so for the brave of heart you can add and write
your own plugins!
How to obtain a Key:Log onto www.lcdc.cc/bundled and activate your copy of LCDC using the Activation Key provided with your MX display. Enter the Registration Key generated into LCDC from the about page to unlock your free copy of this powerful monitoring application.
What's a plugin?A plugin is a small program that adds a whole new range of events, actions and variables to LCDC. Currently the plugins that are available are:
Why is this better than other apps, and why are you charging for it?When this started I did it for a bit of fun, however as I expanded it I begin to realize how much these LCD/VFD's where capable of and wanted to exploit that. I have now put a lot of time and effort in to designing and building a full application that can do a lot more than others and one of my main priorities is stability. We decided that rather than have this a small sideline product we would spend some effort on it to make a complete package that will give support and upgrades. I like others have a wife and two kids to support, I wish I could spend all my time doing stuff for free, but that's just not the way I work... having said that, there is some great free software out there!
