The MIRCC8_USB USB Push Notification is equipped with a USB interface that will allow you to connect a contact closure
(no voltage) input to the board and send a text and/or email message when the circuit is closed. N-Button Software will read the
inputs on the board 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!

USB Push Notification Setup
Mounts as a COM Port
The USB Push Notifiction board connects directly to the USB port of your computer and will mount as a COM port on your PC. Windows computers with access to the internet will automatically download the proper driver or it can be manually downloaded from ftdichip.com. Once powered up, the board can communicate to N-Button Software using the assigned COM Port. N-Button will ask for your COM Port in Device Manager when adding the board.
This board is equipped with a ZUSB Module. By selecting the USB interface you will be communicating through the USB port of your computer to the board. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type Power Supply at checkout.

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.
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_USB 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.

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.
