A/D conversion is the process of converting a voltage in the range of 0 to 5VDC into a number that can be processed by custom software that you develop. The higher the voltage, the higher the number.

Ground and 0-5VDC Input Channel Terminal Blocks
Add Analog to Digital Input to any UXP Port
Add Analog to Digital Conversion (A/D) to any NCD ProXR controller with a UXP Port (look for UXP in the part number) or any Analog to Digital Boards (Look for AD in the part number) using the
UAD1216 Expansion Module! The UAD1216 is an 8-Bit/12-Bit 16-Channel Analog to Digital Converter Expansion Module designed to attach to any NCD ProXR controller with a UXP expansion port. That's right, turn your existing controller into an analog to digital converter! You cannot daisy chain different types of applications to the same controller however. In other words if you plug in an A/D Converter you will not be able to plug a Potentiometer or Contact Closure module. You will not be able to plug a A/D expansion into a Contact Closure or Potentiometer. For controllers that are equipped with a UXP Expansion port (and are suitable master devices for UXP Series Expansion) simply look for UXP in the part number. All Contact Closure Expansion Modules have an input and an output so you can simply daisy chain the boards together until you reach the number of contacts you are looking for up to a total of 256 including any A/D inputs there may be ob the master controller.
Ideal for Monitoring Voltages
While Analog to Digital Converters are ideal for monitoring voltages in the range of 0 to 5 volts DC. Our current product line is widely used for Temperature monitoring, Light Level monitoring, with minimal integration time. Analog to Digital conversion is the process of converting a voltage to a number. The higher the voltage (not exceeding 5VDC), the higher the number. 8-Bit Analog to Digital Converters offers numeric values from 0-255. 10-Bit ADC offers numeric values from 0 to 1023. 12-Bit A/D offers numeric values from 0-4093. Simply query the controller to ask it the voltage on the A/D input.
Analog to Digital Relay Boards
We have an extensive selection of relay boards that have eight channel 8/10-Bit
Analog to Digital Conversion built into the board, look for AD in the part number. All Relay Boards that offer Analog to Digital Conversion feature the
ProXR Command Set and an
XR Expansion Port, simply look for PROXR in the part number. Built from the ground up with expansion in mind, simply chain the
XR Expansion Modules to the XR Expansion port, one after another, to meet your computer controlled switching requirements to add up to 256 relays. Analog to Digital boards are also equipped with a UXP port to add A/D Expansion modules up to 256 inputs including the A/D inputs that are on the master board.
NCD Component Library
Fully functioning Analog to Digital Conversion programs 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. Eight different A/D samples are available including an AD Temperature Converter, to view screen shots of each sample visit our
NCD Component Library Page. Start by downloading the FREE NCD Component Library and you will be communicating with any NCD device faster that ever!

Fusion 4 Series Controllers are the most powerful relay controllers we currently manufacture.
Capable of controlling relays from a computer, sensor readings, or a time schedule, Fusion 4
controllers can be used to automate just about any application. Choose a controller based on
the quantity and power rating of relays your application requires.
