|NCD Base Station Software||Base Station identifies the controller that is attached to your computer and provides a convenient graphical user interface for controlling and testing your NCD Device.|
|NCD Component Library||The NCD Component Library is a Plug-In for Visual Studio 2005/2008 that greatly reduces software development time, effectively reducing most control operations to a single line of code. This free download includes many example applications covering a wide range of topics.|
Our RS-232 Relay Boards are fully E3C complaint, allowing up to 256 NCD devices to share a single RS-232 serial port. Mix and match up to 256 devices in any combination. Speak to each device individually or all devices at once.
To control the this Relay Controller, simply connect a data and ground wire between the Relay Controller and computer or microcontroller. Provide +12 Volts DC to the board, and send ASCII character codes to control the relays.
Even a no-frills design deserves a high-quality driver stage, and that's exactly what we put on our Serial Relay Controllers. Fast-reacting flyback diodes help shunt dangerous voltages away from the driver circuit.
Features include no-click startup, LED status lights, and E3C compliance. Relays can be controlled at 9600 baud and the board is compatible with ANY computer or microcontroller capable of delivering RS-232 data.

ProXR - The Most Powerful Relays Available!
This ProXR controller is built with the most powerful command set available anywhere. Put simply, ProXR is a standardized set of commands for controlling relays. This controller is also equipped with Analog to Digital conversion which is simply converting a voltage in the range of 0 to 5VDC into a number that can be processed by custom software that you develop. The applications are limitless and the data that you receive such as light levels and temperature levels can easily activate relays when A/D levels are reached. See more on A/D Conversion below.
Once powered up, the relay controller waits for a command. A command consists of a few bytes of data. Usually between 2 and 6 bytes. Once the command has been received, the controller processes the command, and sends you back ASCII character code 85 to signal the completion of your command. You can send commands to activate relays, deactivate relays, control all the relays at one time, plus you can send commands that tell a relay to turn on for a few seconds, minutes, or hours. You can assign 16 timers to any of the 256 relays, and set the timers to go off after the duration has expired. Look at the ProXR Command Set to see the full list of commands available.
The features list of the ProXR series controllers is extensive. Our ProXR Software helps get you acquainted with the powerful command set. To download, look for the ProXR Software in the Resources section to the right and bottom of this page. The ProXR Manual and the mechanical drawing with dimensions and hole layouts can also be found in the Resources section.
Out of the box, the ProXR series controllers are ready to control 256 relays. You may not have 256 relays just yet, but if your application grows, then the controller is ready to grow with you. The ProXR series controllers are built from the ground up to be expanded. When you need more relays, the XR Expansion port will allow you to add another bank of relays (any kind you need), with programming changes taking minutes instead of hours. No complicated protocols, just simplicity, built into the controller from the very beginning.
Connect this board to the USB port of your computer using a USB to Serial adapter. The USB to Serial Adapter is to be used with the Quick Start Kit and is available at checkout.
Also available is our QS12 Quick Start Kit. Kit includes a high quality regulated switcher supply, serial cables, and an RSIO adapter board used to add a standard serial and power connector to this relay controller. This Quick Start Kit can be purchased during checkout of this controller.
