Analog to Digital Conversion
Our Analog to Digital Converters are available with
8-Bit and 10-Bit resolutions standard, 12-Bit resolutions are achievable with some ADC control devices. 16, 32, and 48 channel devices offer Analog to Digital Converters with high speed A/D conversion and minimal programming. A wide variety of computer interfaces are available in your choice of wireless, USB and RS232. If you are new to A/D Conversion learn to use A/D with NCD devices with our

Easily activate relays when A/D limits are reached
Detect audio levels in a room when connected to a microphone
Read switches, potentiometers, and analog joysticks
Applications are limitless, and surprisingly easy to integrate
Available on select boards or add A/D Expansion Module to any UXP board

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
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!
The above screen shots show two of the eight available fully functioning A/D samples that are available with the NCD Component Library. View all the examples on our NCD Component Library Page.

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.
