The LucidControl USB Digital Input Output Module controls 4 DI and 4 DO signals. It acquires e.g. 24V signals and drives relays.
4 Digital Input Channels
Digital input channel configuration and protection
The input channels of the USB Digital I/O Module are carried out optical and potential insulated in order to protect the hardware and give higher flexibility in design.
Voltage threshold levels of the digital input channels
The USB Digital I/O Module is available for 3 different threshold input voltages of the ranges 5V, 10V and 24V in order to interface with many different devices directly without conversion of input levels.
Digital input channel operation modes
In order to give most flexibility each of the 4 input channels of the USB IO Module can operate in one of the following modes:
|Reflect Mode||Samples a digital input signal and provide its conditioned and debounced state.|
|Edge Detection Mode||High speed sampling of digital inputs and detecting rising or falling edges in real-time.|
|Count Mode||Configurable high speed counter allows to acquire a wide range of pulses and sensors.|
Signal conditioning and debouncing
Filters can be applied to each input channel in order to suppress erroneous signal states.
High sampling rate
Ensures signal detection without activity of the host computer which is crucial in order to guarantee precise timing.
4 Digital Output Channels
Digital output channel configuration and protection
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 24 V and 0.75 A and can switch loads up to 18 Watt.
Digital output operation modes
The 4 outputs of the USB Relay Module can operate in different modes:
|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.|
