Sensor Relay Control
The board can be configured to trigger a relay from a sensor attached to the analog inputs on the board. Analog Inputs are capable of reading switches and sensors operating in the 0 to 5VDC range. Once configured, the Reactor CPU is constantly monitoring external sensors using 8 analog inputs that can read switches, resistance changes, or voltages from 0 to 5VDC. Inputs can be configured to trigger relays, relay timers, delays and relay activation sequences.
Selecting The Ethernet Interface
By selecting the Ethernet interface you will be uploading the configuration to the board through your local area network or internet. Boards on this page are equipped with a Lantronix communications module that adds Ethernet communications to the board. The board will plug directly into your router where it is assigned an IP address. Once the IP address has been assigned the board can be discovered on the network using the included Base Station software. Using Base Station you can configure and upload it to the board, read sensors and manually control the board over the network.
Selecting an Ethernet Relay Board
Below you will find the 8-channel Timer Relays that are available. The difference being the amperage of the relays installed and the type of relay. Choose the controller that fits the amperage you are switching. You will find SPDT relays in the 5, 10 and 20 amp versions and an SPST version in 30 amp. A solid state version is also available. For more information on selecting the correct relay for your application see Choosing a Proper Amperage
