LucidControl USB Digital Output Module and USB Relay Module. Control of 4/8 solid-state and mechanical relay channels.

SKU: LCTR-DO4- Category:

Control of 4/8 digital output channels or relays

The USB Digital Output Module is the control solution for digital lines. It allows the generation of high/low signals as well as to control power consumers.

USB Module options
Output Configuration Function
Solid State Relay Interface The optical and potential insulated outputs are realized by using solid state relays (SSR). The USB Relay Module with SSR provides the best overall capabilities and high protection level for controlling power loads like pumps, fans or heating elements by statically switching or by periodically pulsing. Each digital output is rated with 30 V and 0.75 A and can switch loads up to 22.5 Watt.
SPDT Relay Interface Using the USB Relay Module with mechanical SPDT (C-Type) relay switches allows to switch power loads as well as to switch or toggle signals e.g. for measurements without distortion. Mechanical relays provide a very high protection level.

Please find here more information about the characteristics of the different USB IO Module outputs.

Digital Output operation modes

For most flexibility each of the 4/8 channels of the USB Relay Module can be configured on one of the following modes:

Mode Function
Reflect Mode Generates a digital output signal by setting the channels state directly.
Duty-Cylce Mode Generates a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) by configuring cycle time and duty cycle.
This mode can be used in order to control the power of loads by pulsing them periodically.
On-Off Mode Generates a time sequenced output signal. Using this mode the USB IO Module can be used to realize e.g. time switches.
Galvanic USB Isolation

All LucidControl USB IO Modules are available with galvanic USB isolation.

High speed output processing

The USB IO Module provides functions which allow to access the outputs without direct interaction of the host computer. This allows a precise timing which would not be realizable if the host computer was involved.

Optical indication of digital output states

The state of each digital output is reflected by a LED

No Power Supply needed

All LucidControl are power supplied by USB and do not need additional power supply.

Easy installation of Hard and Software

LucidControl modules are easy to install and start working immediately after set up.
The IO Modules are compatible with Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi and Beagle Bone.
LucidControl provides drivers for all major operating systems. Command line tools and APIs for Windows and Linux are available. The API is ready for .NET, Java and Python.
