ZigBee Relay Controllers offer Standardized Low-Cost, Wireless 2-Way Communications, Offering Excellent Communication Range and Reliability. ZigBee Relay Controllers allow you to speak to a NCD Device using standard Serial Communication as though the device were directly connected to the COM port of your computer. Serial commands are automatically forwarded to ZigBee devices within range.
The ease of setup of the ZigBee Relays, which utilize a wireless protocol is demonstrated in the above video. These Wireless Relays are ideal for reliable, low cost wireless relay applications. Not only is it easy to power and connect the wireless interface but thanks to our example software and source code there is little to no programming required to allow your computer to begin communicating with the relay. Simply connect a ZigBee Modem into your USB port and it will forward all commands to the Wireless Relay. (Commands can also be sent to multiple Relays).
Our ZigBee Relays feature a wide range of controllers to fit just about any application!
DPDT and SPDT controllers are available with your choice of eight channel 8/10-Bit
Analog to Digital Conversion or
UXP Expansion Port on selected models and all are of course
SignalSwitch compatible. Our recently introduced
Low Cost line of relay controllers also feature a ZigBee controller. Select ZigBee Relays feature the
ProXR Command Set and an
XR Expansion Port. 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 up to 256 relays. A
ZigBee Modem connects to the USB Port of your PC and mounts as a virtual COM port (a ZigBee Modem video can be found at the bottom of this page). Simply write your software to talk to the serial port and you will be talking to wireless devices in no time!!!

UXP is a new standardized data port, specifically for the purpose of speaking to various expansion modules. If the controller you are considering is equipped with a UXP port, you can take advantage of extended commands to speak to our growing line of I/O expansion modules. UXP in the part number allows you to:
By downloading the NCD Component Library you will receive over 40 samples from A/D Conversion to Duration and Pulse Timing and best of all it's FREE!! We want the user to be able to experiment with all the different samples available so as of right now the samples cannot be downloaded individually.
We've "Started" the Programming for You
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. Start by downloading the NCDComponentSetup.zip file from the NCD Component page.
