AR-2MF USB RELAY

The AR-2MF Multi-Function USB Relay is a stand alone relay interface for connection to USB which provides software control of (2) relays which are included and mounted on the AR-2 circuit assembly. The relays are energized or de-energized by using the RS-232 control signals DTR and RTS or alternate relay control setting (set by shunts on the circuit board). When the alternate relay control is selected, DTR and RTS no longer control the relays and the relays are controlled using relay control commands. The AR-2MF can be used as a direct replacement for the AR-2 when connected to USB with no software changes needed (Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7/8/8.1 and Windows 10, Server 2008/2012). The AR-2MF is for use with USB only using a standard USB cable (or OTG cable for Android devices with a micro USB port). The EN-C Instrument Case may be used to house the AR-2MF if an enclosure is required. The relays are SPDT rated at 16 amp 250 volts AC. A terminal block is provided for relay contact connections (12 to 30 awg wire size using rising cage clamp design). Power is supplied to the AR-2MF through the USB connection. USB connection is via a USB type B receptacle (CC-USBB1 or CC-USBB6 connector cable required). Software and source code examples are provided that allow the AR-2MF relays to be controlled from your desktop, your program or controlled over a network (LAN, Wi-Fi, Internet, etc.). The AR-2MF is Android device compatible (free apps on Google Play and our web site). The AR-2MF may be ordered with an optional expansion port that will allow the AR-2MF to be expanded up to a total of 10 relays (or 8 inputs or combinations) using the EX-8M Expansion Card. Relays may be time scheduled using the SW-A Load Programmer software for 7 day time control of relays. LabVIEW compatible, includes LabVIEW VI and graphic software example. Control software examples in Basic, Visual Basic and C and others are provided with the order on CD. Dimensions... 2.375" by 3.1".
