USB Relay Controllers allow computer controlled switching using the USB port of your computer. An NCD USB Relay Board emulates a COM port, allowing you to speak to the relay board using any programming language that supports serial communications. COM drivers allow you to assign any COM port to the USB Relay Board. An NCD USB Relay Driver supports 8-Channels of 8-Bit / 10-Bit Analog to Digital Conversion (A/D) or UXP Expansion Port, and includes an XR Relay Expansion Port for adding additional relays to the USB Relay Controller Board.
Summary of USB Communications
USB Interface mounts as a Virtual COM Port on your PC for easy programming and 100% compatibility across ALL operating systems
Plug in, open the Virtual COM Port at 115.2K baud, and start sending commands
UXP is a new standardized data port, specifically for the purpose of speaking to various expansion modules. If the controller you are considering is equipped with a UXP port, you can take advantage of extended commands to speak to our growing line of I/O expansion modules. UXP in the part number allows you to:
By downloading the NCD Component Library you will receive over 40 samples from A/D Conversion to Duration and Pulse Timing and best of all it's FREE!! We want the user to be able to experiment with all the different samples available so as of right now the samples cannot be downloaded individually.
We've "Started" the Programming for You
With the NCD Component Library we've "started" the programming for you. We say started because these are fully functioning samples but we've also included the source code so you can customize them to your exact needs. Start by downloading the NCDComponentSetup.zip file from the NCD Component page.
