RS-232 Serial Relay Controller
Our RS-232 Relay Boards are fully E3C compliant, allowing up to 256 Dcube Store devices to share a single RS-232 serial port. Mix and match up to 256 devices in any combination. Speak to each device individually or all devices at once. To control this Relay Controller, simply connect a data and ground wire between the Relay Controller and computer or microcontroller. Provide +12 Volts DC to the board, and send ASCII character codes to control the relays. Even a no-frills design deserves a high-quality driver stage, and that’s exactly what we put on our Serial Relay Controllers. Fast-reacting flyback diodes help shunt dangerous voltages away from the driver circuit. Features include no-click startup, LED status lights, and E3C compliance. Relays can be controlled at 9600 baud and the board is compatible with ANY computer or microcontroller capable of delivering RS-232 data. Connect this board to the USB port of your computer using a USB to Serial adapter. The USB to Serial Adapter is to be used with the QuickStart Kit and is available at checkout.
Dcube Store Component Library
Fully functioning programs for the Pro Series Controllers are included with the Dcube Store Component Library. With the Dcube Store 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. The Dcube Store Component Library is a plug-in for the Visual Studio 2005/2008 that greatly simplifies the communications to the Dcube Store product line. The samples can be run in Visual Studio and fully customized to your needs. Four different Pro Series samples are available including Relay Control, Read Status, and Timing Features, to view screenshots of each sample visit our Dcube Store Component Library Page. Start by downloading the FREE Dcube Store Component Library and you will be communicating with any Dcube Store device faster than ever!
The above sample demonstrates control and status read of up to 8 Relays. Compatible with all Pro (NOT ProXR) Series Relay Controllers, Including 4 and 8-Channel SPDT and DPDT Versions.
