USB-XBee wireless 8 channel relay card products

 

   

USBXBeeTX Transceiver module and XBee8PRMx wireless eight channel relay card

 

XBee8PRMx powered by external 12V battery

XBee8PRMx  - shown with perspex cover & base fitted (Cover8PRMx)

Description:

Low cost, general purpose wireless relay card and compatible XBeePro transceiver module, fully potted & connected via 3 metre USB cable.  Suitable for a wide range of commercial, industrial or home automation applications, the relay card is designed to handle 250VAC @ 10 amps and is fitted with 2 part (male/female) screw terminal blocks, allowing rapid swap over or re-use elsewhere.  The XBee family of RF devices provide ‘transparent’ RF USB/serial communications capability (not Ethernet compatible).  Relay module can operate from a battery pack.

Relay contacts are isolated and uncommitted.  PCB & relays are designed to handle 120/240VAC@10A, but are also suitable for switching low voltage AC or DC voltages. Both modules are fitted with power and status indicator LED’s. Velcro fixing pad is supplied with the USBXBeeTx module.

Compatible with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista, Windows 7, Windows CE, MacOSX and Linux platforms

Available with LabVIEW, LabWindowsCVI, Visual Basic, Visual C, C#, JAVA , VEE & Delphi example programs (see the 'downloads' section of our website).  (Click on the 'downloads' button below).

 

   
   
Features:  
   
  • Low cost XBee wireless relay card fitted with 8 opto-isolated relays, designed to switch 120/240VAC at 10 amps (not Ethernet/wireless hub compatible)
  • Robust secure RF protocol employing acknowledgement and multiple retries etc
  • Requires USB connected XBeeTx module and XBee8PRMx relay card (sold as a pair).  Each USBXBeeTx module has a pre-programmed, unique USB serial number/Device ID
  • Single point to multipoint (broadcast address), or single point to single point (unique address) addressing options available
  • Supports bi-directional ‘write/read’ operation.  (Your SW doesn't have to 'keep track' of previously commanded relay status)
  • Transceiver range >100 metres (*line of sight).  Broadcast or unique address options available
  • USBXBeeTx module is housed in a fully potted ABS case & connected/powered via 3 metre USB cable.  Supplied with Velcro self adhesive pad
  • Compatible with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista, Windows 7, Windows CE, MacOSX and Linux platforms
  • Available with LabVIEW, LabWindowsCVI, Visual Basic, Visual C, C#, JAVA , VEE & Delphi example programs (see the 'downloads' section of our website).
  • Uses same software interface & drivers as used in our existing range of USB and serial port cards - previously developed code can be reused
  • Simple text commands mean the card can be controlled with commands input from terminal emulation programs (such as Windows HyperTerminal)
  • Relay contacts and PCB tracking is designed to handle 240VAC at 10 amps.  Relays are also suitable for switching low DC voltages and currents.  Above datasheet link gives full details/spec for the relay type used on this card.
  • Relays are SPDT, Form C, changeover type, with N/O, COM and N/C contacts taken to the screw terminal blocks along each side of the card
  • Opto-isolated - USB isolation from relays to 5000V AC (rms)
  • LED status indicators for USB connection/power and relay activation status
  • Relay contact resistance 100mOhms Max
  • Relay Operate 12mS /release time 7mS Max (inc software overhead)
  • All relay contacts taken to 2 part male/female screw terminal blocks, allowing rapid swap over or re-use of card
  • USBXBeeTx Transceiver module is USB connected and powered.  Fully potted and supplied with self adhesive Velcro fixing pad.
  • Relay card requires external 5V to 15V DC  PSU or battery pack (approx 50mA per relay/470mA all relays active).
  • DC power connects via 2.1mm DC power jack (male) or via edge mounted screw terminal block
  • 0V & +5V supply voltages available at screw terminal blocks for possible onward use in (or powering of) target application
  • Relay card supplied with nylon feet (will take self tapping screws).  Corner mounting holes allow cards to be stacked if required
  • Clear, protective cover/base, and also DIN rail mountable base & cover options available
  • FCC, CЄ & RoHS compliant, BS9001:2000 manufacture.  Full list of international wireless certifications and approvals available from the Maxstream website (www.maxstream.net)
  • Free shipping on this product (Worldwide)
