Contact Closure Relay
Trigger Relays with Contact Closure

Our Contact Closure Boards are equipped with firmware built into the board that will allow you to read inputs or trigger relays. Monitor inputs by sending a couple of bytes of data to a Scan Series Controller and the controller will send back a value indicating the current status. Control a relay remotely with our popular MirC and MirX controllers that have tow separate controllers that work together as a married pair. Contact Closures on local relay control relays on the remote controller. Reactor Relays can be controlled by a contact closure or by the included software.

Our Scan Series is ideal for reading motion detectors, glass breakage detectors, window/door open detectors, light switches, and other kinds of devices with a contact closure output.

Without a Computer:

MirC Relay Pair
Contact Closure Relay
Time Delay Relay

Category Link: MirC Relay
  • Sender Controls Receiver Device
      - Contact Closure Inputs on Sender
      - Relay Outputs on Receiver
  • Wired, Wireless & Internet Operation
  • No Programming Required

MirX Relay Pair

MirX Controller
Contact closure inputs on each controller activate the relays at the other controller.
Category Link: MirX Controllers
Each MirX controller is equipped with contact closure inputs and outputs. The inputs on one controller activate the relays on the remote device using wireless or Ethernet communications. Since both devices are equipped with contact closure inputs and relays, each device targets and controls the remote device.  Two controllers are included when you purchase a MirX pair.

ZSCAN Mirror Module

ZSCAN Mirror Modules
Control Remote Wireless Relays from Contact Closure Inputs. Control up to 256 Different Relays!
Category Link: ZSCAN Mirror Modules
ZSCAN Mirror Modules are easily wired to any switch and allow remote relay control up to 1 Mile Away. Supporting 2-Way Communications, it is now possible to see the on/off status of your remote relays from the wireless 802.15.4 Mirror Module.

Reactor Relays

Reactor Relay Controller
Reactor controllers trigger relays automatically based on inputs
Category Link: Reactor Controllers
Reactor Relay Controllers are configured using the included Reactor Configuration Utility. Once configured, the controller works without a computer connected, allowing analog inputs to trigger relays according to the configuration. The Reactor Relay was developed to address the needs of customers who need a controller capable of making intelligent decisions without a computer.

Ideal for Reading Detectors

Our Scan Series is ideal for reading motion detectors, glass breakage detectors, window/door open detectors, light switches, and other kinds of devices with a contact closure output. Contact Closure Input is a vital part of just about any control system. Our Scan Series Boards allow you to read 16, 32, or 48 switches per Board and can be expanded using our ScanSwitch Series UXP Expansion Boards (see below). Multiple ScanSwitch expansion modules are easily chained together to read up to 256 Contact Closure Inputs per board.

Contact Closure Relay

Control relays with the Scan Series controllers. Using the onboard XR Expansion Port you can add up to 256 relays to any of the Scan Series boards.

Computer Interfaces Available

Contact Closure Input Boards are available in with many computer interfaces. USB, RS232, Bluetooth Wireless, 802.15.4 Wireless, Long Range XSC Wireless and ZB ZigBee Mesh Networking interfaces are all available in the Scan Series.

Here's How It Works

To monitor a contact closure, simply connect the Scan Series controller to your computer.  The controller will mount as a COM port.  Open the COM port.  Next, you will send a couple of bytes of data to the Scan series controller, requesting input detection. The Controller will report back a value from 0-255, indicating the current status of the inputs on a selected bank in binary form.

NCD Component Library

Fully functioning programs for Scan Series and motion detectors 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.  Start by downloading the FREE NCD Component Library from the NCD Component Library Page and you will be communicating with any NCD device faster that ever!

ScanSwitch Series UXP Expansion BoardsUSCS16 Ultra Series Contact Closure Detector Expansion Module
Switch Closure Input is a vital part of just about any control system. Our ScanSwitch expansion modules allow you to read 16, 32, or 48 switches per expansion module. Multiple expansion modules are easily chained together to read more inputs and will work with any of the above Contact Closure Input Detectors. For instance, if you need your computer to monitor 64 switches, you can use your choice of 32 Channel Contact Closure Input Board and one USCS32 ScanSwitch expansion modules (connected end to end) to read your switches.  You can also connect the ScanSwitch Expansion Boards to any UXP Relay Board and make it a Contact Closure Detector.

Here's How It Works
ScanSwitch is an expansion module that connects to a UXP or Ultra Series controller with version 2.0 or later firmware. To use this device, simply connect the ScanSwitch to any available UXP or Ultra Port. Next, you will send a couple of bytes of data to the Ultra series controller, requesting input detection. The Ultra Controller will report back a value from 0-255, indicating the current status of the inputs on a selected bank in binary form.
