Ideal for Monitoring Voltages

While Analog to Digital Converters are ideal for monitoring voltages in the range of 0 to 5 volts DC. Our current product line is widely used for Temperature monitoring, Light Level monitoring, with minimal integration time. Analog to Digital conversion is the process of converting a voltage to a number. The higher the voltage (not exceeding 5VDC), the higher the number. 8-Bit Analog to Digital Converters offers numeric values from 0-255. 10-Bit ADC offers numeric values from 0 to 1023. 12-Bit A/D offers numeric values from 0-4093. Simply query the controller to ask it the voltage on the A/D input. Up to 48 analog inputs are supported on some controllers.

Analog to Digital Relay Boards

We have an extensive selection of relay boards that have eight channel 8/10-Bit Analog to Digital Conversion built into the board, look for AD in the part number.  All Relay Boards that offer Analog to Digital Conversion feature the ProXR Command Set and an XR Expansion Port, simply look for PROXR in the part number.  Built from the ground up with expansion in mind, simply chain the XR Expansion Modules to the XR Expansion port, one after another, to meet your computer controlled switching requirements to add up to 256 relays.  All are of course SignalSwitch compatible.

Add A to D to Any UXP Board

Add Analog to Digital Conversion to any NCD ProXR controller with a UXP Port (look for UXP in the part number) using the UAD1216 Expansion Module! The UAD1216 is an 8-Bit/12-Bit 16-Channel Analog to Digital Converter Expansion Module designed to attach to any NCD ProXR controller with a UXP expansion port. That's right, turn your existing controller into an analog to digital converter!   Visit our UAD1216 page for more details.

NCD Component Library

Fully functioning Analog to Digital Conversion programs are included with the NCD Component Library. With the NCD Component Library we've "started" the programming for you. We say started because these are fully functioning samples but we've also included the source code so you can customize them to your exact needs.  The NCD Component Library is a plug-in for the Visual Studio 2005/2008 that greatly simplifies the communications to the NCD product line.  The samples can be run in Visual Studio and fully customizable to your needs.  Eight different A/D samples are available including an AD Temperature Converter, to view screen shots of each sample visit our NCD Component Library Page.  Start by downloading the FREE NCD Component Library and you will be communicating with any NCD device faster that ever!

Reactor Relay Controllers

Analog Inputs Trigger Relays          Expected Release January, 2010

NCD Engineers are currently finalizing the development of a completely new generation relay controller. The Reactor Relay Series controllers represent the worlds first relay controller capable of making its own intelligent decisions based on user input.  Unlike previous generations, the Reactor Relay Series controllers are configured using our custom Reactor Configuration Utility.  Once configured, the controller works without a computer connected, allowing analog inputs to trigger relays according to the configuration. The Reactor Relay was developed to address the needs of customers who need a controller capable of making intelligent decisions without a computer. Live Reactor Relays are configured wirelessly or through a USB interface. Once configured, the Reactor will work on its own. At any time, a remote computer may read analog inputs and take control of the relays. The remote computer can later return control back to the Reactor logic. We are expecting a January 2010 release date, for more information visit our Reactor Relay Page.
