RS-232 Reactor Relay

Intelligent Switching without a Computer is the foundation of the Reactor Series relay controllers. The Reactor Series will help you activate a switch when it gets dark outside. If the door has been left open, it will close automatically. When the temperature falls, another switch is triggered. If motion is detected, a light will turn on for a preset time. When soil in the ground is too dry, a switch will be activated that can save your crops, save your energy, save you a trip to the field, and save you money.

This Reactor controller connects to the RS-232 port of your computer and requires a 12VDC Power Supply.  Once powered up, the relay controller waits for a command.  A command consists of a few bytes of data.  Usually between 2 and 6 bytes.  Once the command has been received, the controller processes the command, and sends you back ASCII character code 85 to signal the completion of your command.

Three RS-232 Connection Options

There are three RS-232 connection options available for this controller.

Wire It Up
Plug It In

Choose the connection that fits your needs. The ZRS-A connection is recommended for applications where hard wiring directly to the board is needed. ZRS-B has the fill 9-Pin RS-232 connector on the board. The ZRS-AB Has the fill 9-Pin connector but is is located off the board for applications where the board may be place inside an enclosure an the RS-232 connector needs to reach to the side of the enclosure.  You can choose one of these connection options at checkout.
