Time Delay Switch

The Reactor Relays are just that...a relay that reacts to a connected sensor or contact closure.  Use that sensor or contact closure to trigger the relay or start a time delay so the relay will turn off automatically.  Set a trigger point where a relay will trigger above or below that point.  Set a range where the relay remains energized as long as the sensor level is in that range.  Use a connected sensor or something as simple as a button to start a timer or sequence that you configure.  Setup, configuration and manual control is done with the included Base Station Software.

USB Reactor Options
The USB Time Delay Relay uses a USB cable to connect to your computer to configure the board.  Once configured the board will work on it's own or leave computer connected and take manual control of the board, read sensor levels and check the relay status.

1-Channel USB Options
USB Time Delay Relays are available with SPDT (single pole single throw) 5, 10 and 20 amp relays or SPST (single pole single throw) 30-amp relays installed.

Time Delay Relay
Time Delays can be set before or after the sensor level is reached.

Sensor Relay Control

The board can be configured to trigger a relay from a sensor attached to the analog inputs on the board.  Analog Inputs are capable of reading switches and sensors operating in the 0 to 5VDC range.  Once configured, the Reactor CPU is constantly monitoring external sensors using 8 analog inputs that can read switches, resistance changes, or voltages from 0 to 5VDC.  Inputs can be configured to trigger relays, relay timers, delays and relay activation sequences.

Selecting The USB Interface

USB Relay ZUSB ModuleBy selecting the USB interface you will be configuring through the USB port of your computer and uploading these settings to the board.  Boards on this page are equipped with a ZUSB communications module that adds USB communications to the board.  At any time, a computer may monitor the Reactor, Trigger Events, Activate Relays, or Change Configuration settings.

Selecting a USB Relay Board

Below you will find the 1-Channel USB Relay control that are available.  The difference being the amperage of the relays installed and the type of relay.  Choose the controller that fits the amperage you are switching.  You will find SPDT relays in the 5, 10 and 20 amp versions and an SPST version in 30 amp.  For more information on selecting the correct relay for your application see Choosing a Proper Amperage.

Easy Board Selection

Find the board you need by using the interactive menu to he right.  Hover over the Button and select the number of relays you want installed and then select the computer interface you need.  Once there simply select the board with the correct amperage for the item you are switching.
