Logic Way ABP (ABP08, ABP09) driver

Logic Way GmbH offers the ABP08 (RS232) and ABP09 (USB) appliance control panels with a 3×16 text LCD display.

At the moment the driver supports text output, keypad usage, background color definition. The panel's clock is automatically synchronized from the PC. The panel has an built-in switch contact that can be used to scheduled power-on the computer when switched off.

Other functions (buzzer and situation-dependent background colorization) are future work.
