This Programmable Controller is simply programmed using the on-board buttons, without the need for a computer. The two high-power outputs can be used to control motors, buzzers, lights and so on. Each output is capable of driving a motor forward or backward with the direction simply set using the reverse button. The analogue input can be used directly with LDRs, thermistors and similar sensors, as well as switches. The input threshold can also be programmed making the controller extremely versatile.

an instruction guide has been provided on the download section of the listing https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/N97QN-4195.pdf this should explain the operational parameters of the device. Unfortunately we are unable to offer any advice on individual usage or modification of the device for use in your own projects or designs.
