The MIRCC8_ETHERNET Push Notification Over IP is equipped with the Gen3 Ethernet interface that will allow you to connect contact closure
(no voltage) inputs to the board and send a text and/or email message when the circuit is closed. N-Button Software will read the
inputs over the network and send out a text and/or Email from the computer to your selected recipients. There are eight inputs that
can send out eight different messages to multiple recipients!

By selecting the Ethernet interface you will be communicating over the network to the board. The MIRCC8_ETHERNET The New Gen3 3rd Gerneration Ethernet interface installed plugs intro a router using a standard CAT5 cable where it is assigned an IP address. The module supports Static IP Addresses, DHCP, and has the ability to recover back to factory default settings with a simple press of a button! Once the board has an IP Address, the board can communicate to N-Button Software using the assigned IP Address. N-Button will ask for your IP Address in Device Manager when adding the board.
3rd Generation Ethernet
This is NCD's 3rd generation hardware for Ethernet to Serial communications, representing giant steps forward in reliability, easy of use, recover-ability, and LOW COST. Other significant improvements include new recovery options. Not only is a web UI supported (as in previous generations), but also a new Windows application may be used to change settings and recover modules with an unknown IP address! New firmware upgrade options are now available, allowing users to upgrade firmware as new features are released.
Ethernet Communications Module
Introducing the NCD5500 Ethernet to Serial Converter. NCD's 3rd Generation Converter setting new standards for reliability, low-cost, and ease of use! Based on the their next generation Ethernet to Serial Converter, the NCD5500 was customized specifically for use with NCD devices to ensure optimal compatibility with our complete line of products. This device also supports Static IP Addresses, DHCP, and has the ability to recover back to factory default settings with a simple press of a button!
DHCP and Static IP Addresses
This module supports both DHCP and static IP Addressing. For communications reliability, especially via Remote Access, we recommend using a Static IP Address when you feel comfortable doing so. This will ensure that the device will always be where you expect it to be when you try to connect to it.
The Gen3 Module has security built-in. Under the management tab users have the ability to assign a password to the module for security.

Yes, we are actually LOWERING the price of this device as costs have shrunk considerably from previous generation Ethernet to Serial conversion technologies. Other significant improvements include new recovery options. Not only is a web UI supported (as in previous generations), but also a new Windows application may be used to change settings and recover modules with an unknown IP address! New firmware upgrade options are now available, allowing users to upgrade firmware as new features are released.
Attention: No Voltage Input
Please Note: Users must NEVER apply any voltage to an input on the Push Notification Board, these inputs are for Dry Contact (No Voltage) Connections ONLY.
The Push Notification Board
In this tab we'll look at the Push Notification board itself. The has board has dry contact (no voltage) input(s) and an interface that will communicate to your computer. When a dry contact input is closed using N-Button or a software program that you develop you can read these inputs and send an email or text message with the connected computer. Please Note: no voltage can be put into the input of this board, it will damage the board.
Dry Contact Inputs
The Inputs on the MIRCC8_ETHERNET board are compatible with any type of dry-contact (no voltage) input. Use any contact closure input such as a button, sensor or another relay and receive an instant SMS and email messages right to your smart phone, tablet, or computer! Combine with other boards on this site for a total switching/notification package.
12 VDC Power Required
The board itself requires 12 VDC power to operate the firmware on the board. The board has an operating range of 9 VDC to 14 VDC, anything over or under this range and the board becomes unreliable. We offer the PWR-12 wall wart type power supply that can connect to a barrel connector on the board. For a spec sheet on the PWR-12 click on the gray Data Sheets tab above.
Dry Contact Inputs
The board has a screw terminal input bar to connect the sendor, button or switch. The terminal can accommodate a 12 Guage Solid Core Wire and really any sensor can be connected as long as it has NO VOLTAGE.
Break-A-Way Tabs for a Smaller Design
The Push Notification Boards have a great feature where space is a premium - Break-A-Way Tabs. The Break-A-Way Tabs allow most boards to fit in an optional undrilled plastic enclosure. Snap off the Break-A-Way Tabs and you have a controller with a smaller profile when you need to fit in a tight space.
This Board is RoHS Compliant
This board is led free and RoHS Compliant. If your requirements are for RoHS compliant parts this board is manufactured with RoHS compliant led free parts and solder.
5-Year Warranty/Money Back Guarantee
Push Notification Boards are guaranteed against manufacturing and functionality defects for a full 5 years! Not to mention a 30-day money back guarantee! If for any reason you are not happy with a board purchased from Relay Pros, simply return it within 30 days and we will give you your money back! Boards that are damaged by our customers will not of course be warranted under any circumstances.
The boards sold are brand new units shipped from our office conveniently located in Missouri. These boards are completely tested before they are released for shipping With so many boards on our site it is impossible to stock boards, please allow two to three days production time for your order to ship. If you have any questions please feel free to call our office at 800-960-4287 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note:N-Button Software is a PC Based software that needs to be always running on a computer connected to the board to read the input. The software will need access to the internet for the messages to be sent.
Configuring and Sending Messages
N-Button Pro/Lite paired with a Push Notification board makes a complete package to send a text and/or email messages. N-Button is a point-and-click software that will allow you to configure messages that are sent and who will receive them. N-Button is a PC based software that will text and/or email from a computer. The Push Notification board can be connected to the computer either from a USB, Ethernet or the Wi-Fi connection, which ever you choose to use.
Send SMS, Email or Both
You can send a SMS and/or email message to selected recipients with an alert that the dry contact circuit has been closed. A Subject and message can be sent stating exactly what circuit has been closed. You can even set the message so it continues to be sent at a predirtumined interval until the dry contact circuit opens again!
Monitor Inputs from Desktop
N-Button also allows you to put a button on the desktop of your PC that changes color with the status of the input! You can assign a color for either state the contact closure. This can also be done in addition or instead of sending a text message. If you don't want to send out a message but want a visual status of the contact closure simply skip the text/email portion of the setup and you will have a visual reference of the output!
Control Relays with Inputs
N-Button Lite/Pro software Automation feature allows you to control relays with this board! N-Button has the ability to set up an Automation rule to match input channels of the push notification board with relay channels on a seperate relay board. The relay status will be changed when the input channel status changes, when the dry contact circuit is closed the relay on another board will turn on and when the circuit opens the relay will turn off.
Here's what you will need to set up a contact closure notification

The PWR12 is regulated power supply providing clean power necessary for
the performance of these boards. The PWR12 US power supply is a 120VAC to 12VDC 1.25A 60Hz regulated
power supply and it plugs into the barrel connector on the board. The output connector is a 2.1mm I.D. x 5.5mm
O.D. x 9.5mm R/A barrel connector.
