Sensors Trigger the Relays

Reactor Relays are equipped with firmware built into the board that will allow you to setup a configuration to trigger relays based on sensor levels or contact closure inputs.  The Reactor Relay series has eight inputs of analog to digital conversion where the board will convert a voltage of 0 to 5 volts into a numeric value of 0 to 255.  Relays can be triggered based on the numeric values of the sensors and can be configured using Base Station Software and stored to the board.  Once stored, the computer is no longer needed and the relays will activate according to your configuration - the board will "react" on it's own.

The USB Time Delay Relay uses a USB cable to connect to your computer to configure the board.  Once configured the board will work on it's own or leave computer connected and take manual control of the board, read sensor levels and check the relay status.  Delays and sequences can be stored into the board when the input level is reached.  Configurations can be as simple as toggling a relay to complex sequences where multiple relays and delays can be involved.  All done without the use of a computer once the configuration is uploaded to the board.

Selecting The USB Interface

USB Relay ZUSB ModuleBy selecting the USB interface you will be configuring through the USB port of your computer and uploading these settings to the board.  Boards on this page are equipped with a ZUSB communications module that adds USB communications to the board.  At any time, a computer may monitor the Reactor, Trigger Events, Activate Relays, or Change Configuration settings.

Selecting a USB Relay Board

Below you will find the 8-Channel USB Relay control that are available.  The difference being the amperage of the relays installed and the type of relay.  Choose the controller that fits the amperage you are switching.  You will find SPDT relays in the 5, 10 and 20 amp versions and an SPST version in 30 amp.  For more information on selecting the correct relay for your application see Choosing a Proper Amperage.
