MXNET pairs can communicate to each other from anywhere in the world using an internet connection. No Static IP Address is required. Simply plug the Ethernet and Power Cords in and give them a few minutes to find each other. After you wire the controlled devices in, you can control billboard lights in India, Runway Lights at an Airport, or simply lock your front door from the office.

MXNET Series Boards have two different modes that you can choose from, Smart Mode and Beacon Mode. Each has its own methods of how they send data and how they react to communication loss.
Smart Mode is the faster and lower energy option of the two. A board in Smart Mode only sends data to the paired device when a contact closure is detected. If communications are lost in Smart Mode all relays will turn off after a period of 30 seconds.
A board in Beacon Mode constantly sends data to the paired device and waits for a change in the data being sent to it to change. If communications are lost the status of all relays will remain the same until communications are reestablished.

MXNET devices are only sold as a permanently married pair, pricing shown on our web site indicates pricing for the pair of controllers. Contact Closure Inputs may only be connected to switches, buttons, or sensors with Contact Closure capability. Not suitable for use in voltage detection applications. MXNET devices use Network Communications to ensure the remote device is properly functioning. The Busy LED is always used to indicate a properly functioning remote device. If you do not see the Busy LED flash, then the MirX controller is unable to communicate to the remote device. A flashing busy LED is your verification that all communications are functioning properly between MXNET controllers.
Inductive loads can lead to dropped communications between the two Devices. Customers who require inductive switching (such as motors, lights, pumps, solenoids, and Transformers) should visit the Induction Suppression portion of our web site.
NCD Currently offers two variations of this design: MirC and MirX.
MirX controllers have relays on both the remote and local device while MirC has relays on only one board which is controlled by a dedicated controller board.
