Ethernet Contact Closure Monitoring
With this Scan Series Controller you can monitor Contact Closure Inputs using a computer. With minimal programming, data collection and control from a single controller allows any computer to talk this device from anywhere on the network. The SCAN Series command set allows you to read anywhere from 1 to 32 banks of 8 inputs in a single query. A single bank contains 8 inputs. Reading 32 banks will report the status of 256 inputs. It doesn't stop there, because we are focused on relay control you can add relays to the board (up to 256) and control them using the data collected from the inputs. Remember these are contact closure inputs ONLY no voltage can be applied to these inputs. With this Ethernet version the board is accessible anywhere on your network.
This board is equipped with a Lantronix XPort Module. The Lantronix communications module adds Ethernet communications to the board. The module will connect to a your router with a standard CAT-5 cable. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type transformer at checkout.
Sending Commands Base Station Software is available at no charge to get you up and running fast (more on Base Station below). Once powered up, the controller waits for a ProXR command. A command consists of a few bytes of data in numerical format (ProXR Enhanced Command Set) 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. When a command was sent to read the status of the contact closure the status is sent back.
Wi-Fi Adapter Available
Make this Ethernet controller Wi-Fi compatible by simply connecting the Netgear WNCE2001 Universal Wireless Internet Adapter. The WNCE2001 will connect any of these Web Relay devices to an existing 802.11 wireless network. Installation couldn't be easier with Netgear's CD-less, wireless installation. The Netgear WNCE2001 can be purchased on your own or select the Wi-Fi option at checkout to add to your order.
