Easy Security Configuration
NCD Wi-Fi relay controllers offer a powerful and easy to use wireless solution for relay control. As many of our customers already know, working with Wi-Fi devices can be challenging because they must be associated to a wireless network, and must be configured with security protocols. This embedded WiFi Device supports all of the most popular security protocols for wireless security.
Wi-Fi Wireless Modules
This board is equipped with a Wi-Fi Module. The Wi-Fi communications module adds 802.11b/g wireless communications to the board. The module is powered from the board. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type Power Supply at checkout. A wi-Fi Configuration kit is available at checkout. Wi-Fi Module Datasheet
Configuring the WiFi Module
Purchase a WiFi Configuration Kit to Configure the Wireless Network of your choice and set your password. This is done through Base Station Software (a free download) and makes configuring the device simple. Just put the Wi-Fi Module into the Configuration Kit, attach the USB port of the Kit to your Computer and open the Base Station Software. After a few clicks simply fill in the information for your wireless network and the module will run through a series of commands and you're ready to control your board. For more information on Wi-Fi configuration see Configuring the Wi-Fi Module.
When using this board over the internet and outside the Local Area Network, Port Forwarding will be required. Port Forwarding is a protocol used by your router to allow incoming requests for connections to get through to a specific device on a specific port. Below is an example of how it works. In this example a router has been setup to forward incoming requests for port 2101 to the device at the IP Address 192.168.2.19 on port 2101. Now when any device that tries to access this Port on the External IP Address the router will see the request and automatically forward the request to the device at the IP Address of 192.168.2.19 on port 2101. If this Port Forwarding rule was not in place and a request came in on port 2101 the router would not know which port or device to forward it to and the request for connection would be denied. Note: Port Forwarding will not be necessary when using this within a Local Area Network. For more on Port Forwarding with detailed instructions for every router visit: https://portforward.com/ .
Easy Software Development
This device supports TCP/IP Communications over a Local Area Network or, if your network is configured properly, Internet Based Communications. Simply attach the device to your wireless network and access it through a socket connection.
Base Station Software is available at no charge to get you up and running fast (more on Base Station below). Once powered up, the controller waits for a ProXR command. A command consists of a few bytes of data in numerical format (see full command set) usually between 2 and 6 bytes. Once the command has been received, the controller processes the command, and sends you back ASCII character code 85 to signal the completion of your command. If a command was sent to read the status of the relay the status is sent back.
Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of relay control is proper handling of inductive loads. Inductive loads can best be defined as anything with a magnetic coil, such as a motor, solenoid, or a transformer. Controlling a inductive load using this relay controller requires the use of induction suppression capacitors. The purpose of this capacitor is to absorb the high voltages generated by inductive loads, blocking them from the contacts of the relay. Without this capacitor, the lifespan of the relay will be greatly reduced. Induction can be so severe that it electrically interferes with the microprocessor logic of our controllers, causing relay banks to shut themselves down unexpectedly. In the case of Wi-Fi devices, customers may experience loss of communications. Capacitors that we offer are available at checkout, for more information view our Induction Suppression Video.

This B-Stock or Refurbished board is a fully working board that may have slight scratches or blemishes that do not effect the operation of the board. The board may be an overstock or returned from a customer.
This board may not have a communication Interface installed and you have the ability to select the interface you would like at checkout. The interface must be selected of you will not be able to communicate to the board.
There are most likely limited quantities of this board available. We do offer quantity pricing on our boards and can offer this if there is sufficient quantities available.
ProXR Lite Relay
In this tab we'll take a look at the board design itself. The ProXR Lite series controllers are machine manufactured for a highly accurate and reliable design. Fully tested before they leave the production facility each ProXR Lite controller is ready to stand up to rigorous demands from heat, cold or vibration. The best test of all is the numerous boards in the field from customers all over the world in all sorts of conditions. Take it from us, these controllers will hold up!
Unlike it's big brother, the ProXR Series, the ProXR Lite series controllers are NOT expandable. The firmware still thinks 256 relays are available but the relay portion of the controller only responds to the first 1, 2, 4 or 8 relays in Bank 1.
Full ProXR Enhanced Firmware Installed
This board has ProXR Firmware installed that responds to the full ProXR Command Set - it's just not expandable. The ProXR Firmware is the industry leading firmware for controlling relays with more commands and functionality than any other board on the market. The list of commands and parameters this board is capable of is extensive. ProXR Enhanced firmware has more commands, more functionality and better control than any other manufacturer! For a detailed list of all the commands with descriptions see our ProXR Enhanced Command Set.
Read Analog Sensors
We did NOT skip the Analog Input portion of the ProXR Lite. All ProXR Lite controllers offer a 8-Channel 8/10-Bit Analog to Digital Converter in addition to relay control. Read and control from 8 sensors per board from 0 to 5 volts! A/D inputs are ideal for reading the on/off status of switches. Simply position the Up/Down jumper in the UP Position and connect a switch between input and ground, software may then be used to monitor the contact closure status of your switch. AD inputs can also be used for reading variable resistance signals. Position of Up/Down jumper should also be in UP position for reading variable resistance signals. The board will then will return a value between 0-255.
SPDT Relay Installed
This device has SPDT relays installed. SPDT Single Pole Double Throw Relays have three connections - Common, Normally Open, and Normally Closed. When the relay is off, the common is connected to the normally closed connection of the relay. When the relay coil is energized, the Common swings over to the Normally Open Connection of the Relay. You can wire the device you are switching to either the Normally Open or the Normally Closed position.
ProXR series controllers are designed for long life, you should expect to get years of service from your controller and literally 2-million cycles from the relays on board. With a 5-year warranty and a money back guarantee you have nothing to loose! Place your order now, while everything is in front of you.
