Legacy Relay Controllers were designed as part of our original product offering. Because of their popularity, discontinuing these products is not really a good option for our customers. Older boards may be available as a green circuit board while the final version has been updated to a black circuit board and assembled on our high-speed pick and place equipment. The black versions will not be discontinued. Some products in this category are scheduled for an update to surface mount technology. When possible, we suggest the ProXR Lite series controllers. If upgrades are not an option, please contact us and we can discuss bringing some of these products back into production.
NCD Push Notification Controllers send data to a host PC or Network when a contact closure input is closed or opened. Data may be sent directly to a PC using Serial, USB or Bluetooth. Using the optional Ethernet or WiFi Communications Module, Data is transmitted over a network via TCP communications.
NCD Input Output Controllers allow computers to easily read contact closure inputs, analog to digital converters, or control Potentiometer outputs. NCD I/O Controllers include the ProXR Relay Control Command Set for Relay Control and may be expanded for additional input or output channels.
