ProXR Relay Expansion Board with 8-Channel High Current Relays
This Relay Expansion Controller includes 8 on-board high-power relays, capable of switching 20 or 30-Amps of current, depending on the variant chosen. This relay expansion controller is designed to plug into our ProXR series industrial relay controllers, and includes the required XR Relay Expansion Controller cable. On-Board status LEDs indicate the on/off status of each relay. This expansion controller operates on 12 Volts DC, and may be powered by connecting two-wires to the on-board screw terminal connector, or by plugging in power supply (sold separately) with a 2.1mm center positive barrel connector.
ProXR Controllers were built with relay expansion in mind. Easily add different types of relays for high-power, signal, general purpose, or solid-state switching. The XR Expansion Port allows you to also add expansion boards and control up to 256 relays.

Simply chain the XR Expansion Modules, one after another, to add additional relays to any ProXR board up to 256 relays.
XR Expansion Port
XR Relay Expansion Controllers add a large variety of relay switching capabilities to an existing Qatalytic ProXR series controller.
The XR Expansion Port is used to add banks of external relays to a ProXR Controller equipped with a XR Expansion port. As we continue to develop new devices, a modular architecture will be implemented, offering the greatest amount of user flexibility.
Controlling XR Expansion Banks
FXR Expansion Boards have no on-board brains. They are entirely reliant on the brains of a “master” ProXR device. The XR Expansion Modules have many possibilities:
- Adds up to 256 Relays to a ProXR Series Controllers
- Mix and Match Relay Types to Suite your Application Needs
- Choose Between Mechanical and Solid-State Relay Types
- Choose DPDT Relays for Signal Switching Applications
Linking XR Expansion Boards Together
XR Expansion Controllers consist of a XR Input and XR Output Connector. Simply connect the XR Output of your ProXR Controller to the XR Input located on the relay expansion board. Chaining more relays is easy. Simply connect the XR Output of your ProXR expansion board to the XR Input of your next relay expansion. Mix and Match different relay types as your application requires.
We always include a 6″ expansion cable with your expansion board. We can provide longer cables if needed, but it’s important to keep the cabling as short as possible. Not all users will be able to expand to 256 total relays, as it all depends on the installation, the amount of electrical interference, and the overall cable length. For best compatibility, the total length of the ProXR controller and all of the expansions and cabling should not exceed 1 or 2 meters.
