This 16-Channel power FET driver allows high-current loads to be controlled from your favorite IoT communications module using I2C communications. This device uses sixteen BUK98150-55A power FETs, allowing on/off cloud control of 16 channels. Control High-Power Relays, Solenoids, Valves, LEDs or incandescent lighting from anywhere in the world. The BUK98150-55A is capable of switching up to 12VDC and 5.5 Amps of current (8 Watts of Heat Dissipation), making it an ideal choice for inductive or resistive switching applications. This device is an ideal choice for IoT controlled 12VDC motors, pumps, valves, and solenoids. The MCP23017 GPIO chip is used as a driver for this controller, making communications easy and expandable to up to 8 devices on a single I2C port.
What is the NCD IoT Interface?
The NCD IoT Interface provides users with a means of changing or upgrading the IoT communications technology as new technologies emerge. The NCD IoT Interface is directly compatible with Particle Photon for WiFi communications, Electron for Cellular Communications, Bluz for Bluetooth. Optionally, adapters may be installed to provide a direct interface to Arduino Nano, Micro, USB, PyCom WyPy, Onion Omega, Raspberry Pi, and much more. The NCD IoT interface allows you to re-use your hardware so it never becomes obsolete! Based on I2C communications, the NCD IoT Interface uses only 2 GPIO lines of your microcontroller, freeing the rest of your CPU for other tasks.
