RS-232 Serial Relay Controller
This simple RS-232 Relay board was designed to offer basic relay control functions using the RS-232 port of your computer. Supports Relay On and Off commands and reading the status of relay. Provide +12 Volts DC to the board, and send ASCII character codes to control the relay. 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 and LED status lights. Relay 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 Quick Start Kit and is available at checkout.
NCD Component Library
Fully functioning programs for R25, R210, R220 and R230 are included with the NCD Component Library. 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. The NCD Component Library is a plug-in for the Visual Studio 2005/2008 that greatly simplifies the communications to the NCD product line. The samples can be run in Visual Studio and fully customizable to your needs. Two different dual channel samples are available to turn on and off the relays, read the status of the relays and retrieve startup default state of relays. To view screen shots of each sample visit our NCD Component Library Page. Start by downloading the FREE NCD Component Library and you will be communicating with any NCD device faster that ever!
The above sample demonstrates control and status read of 2 Relays. Compatible with all R2x RS-232 Series Relay Controllers.

20-Amp SPDT Low Cost High Power Relay Option
This controller is available with a 20-Amp relay option, allowing control of high-power loads up to an absolute maximum of 240VAC at 20 Amps. Ideal for high-power switching applications, this relay should never be used for low-power signals. The 20-Amp relay is of the SPDT variety, which provides Common (C), Normally Open (NO), and Normally Closed (NC) connections. Common is connected to NC when the relay is off. Common disconnects from NC and connects to NO when the relay is activated. This relay is Rated at 20-Amps between NO and C. Do not exceed 10-Amps between C and NC connections. Review Datasheet
