Bluz Quick Start Guide

Introduction The Bluz module is an ultra low power Bluetooth 4.0 LE module which was designed for compatibility with Particle Photon based products.  Bluz aims to provide a cloud connected solution for ultra low power applications. Development on the Bluz module is very simple and intuitive especially if you have experience developing on the Arduino or Particle platforms as it uses the same language and syntax. The concept behind Bluz is you will have one or many Bluz modules in an environment which communicate back to a Bluz Gateway(Bluetooth ->WiFi->Internet->Particle Cloud) which will pass variables and events from the Bluz

MirC Ethernet Contact Closure Transmitter Receiver Quick Start Guide

Introduction: Ethernet Contact Closure Transmitter Receiver Pair The MirC Series relay controllers consist of a married pair of controllers that stay in constant 2-way communications with each other.  MirC controllers used Ethernet communications to transmit and mirror contact closure inputs from one location to another location.  The MirC Series controllers represent a new form of products for our customers who are not electronic engineers but still have electronic applications they would like to complete. These controllers are the simplest controllers we have ever developed. They are as easy as wiring up the devices and pushing a button. No programming or configuring is

MirC Wireless Contact Closure Transmitter Receiver Quick Start Guide

Introduction: Wireless Contact Closure Transmitter Receiver Pair The MirC Series relay controllers consist of a married pair of controllers that stay in constant 2-way communications with each other.  MirC controllers used high-speed wireless communications to transmit and mirror contact closure inputs from one location to another location, up to 2 miles away (depending on transmitter options).  The MirC Series controllers represent a new form of products for our customers who are not electronic engineers but still have electronic applications they would like to complete. These controllers are the simplest controllers we have ever developed. They are as easy as wiring

Lantronix XPort Communications Module Quick Start Guide

Introduction This section will give you step by step instructions on how to access your controller using DHCP Addressing. If you would like to use a static IP Address that will be covered further on in the guide. This section assumes that you have a network with a windows based machine on it running NCD Base Station. Connection to NCD Lantronix devices can be made in two ways, TCP Socket connection or a Virtual Com Port. Both are covered individually in the following pages. Communication Setup TCP Socket Setup Remove the Ethernet Relay Controller from its packaging and connect it

Arduino Nano Quick Start Guide

Arduino Nano is one of the most used Arduino devices. It’s small form factor comes with a USB, UART, I2C and SPI interface. In this Quick Start Guide, we will show you how you can use Arduino Nano directly with NCD products. There are two ways to connect Arduino with NCD product line. 1. Using Arduino Nano I2C shield You can find the Arduino shield here. This I2C shield lets you plug in your Arduino, providing a I2C out port.  Using the I2C out port, you can connect hundreds NCD devices in seconds.  This adapter board also has on board

Particle Photon Quick Start Guide

  Particle Photon Introduction: The Particle Photon module is an engineer favorite here at NCD when we need to put together a control, monitoring, or automation project quickly and easily.  With Particle’s backend cloud we have remote access and monitoring right out of the box.  Writing application code and flashing it to the module is a breeze using Particle’s web based Build IDE and OTA firmware flashing. Programming is via the very popular C/C++ based Arduino Wire language.  Arduino developers will feel right at home developing application code for the Particle Photon module. Power/Communication Connection Overview Most NCD products connect to the

Fusion Master Control Panel Quick Start Guide

Fusion Master Control Panel Fusion Series controllers have some very important commands that warranted their own control panel.  The Fusion Master Control Panel is used to control the performance of the Fusion CPU as well as control the three most important background tasks.  The Fusion Master Control Panel also allows you to download and upload device settings to the controller.  This is very useful for customers who need to backup certain features of their Fusion controller. Taralist Event Processing Turn Taralist Event Processing on or off with this control panel.  When off, Taralist event processing will stop functioning, but the

EEPROM Memory Map Quick Start Guide

EEPROM Memory Commands EEPROM Memory is used to store important parameters within the controller.  Many of the ProXR Standard commands have been removed and replaced with EEPROM Memory Commands.  In the past, the controller had a separate command for each parameter.  This consumed an excessive amount of space within the microprocessor firmware.  To save space, we have consolidated all parameter read and write functions into two simple commands, which saves a lot of space inside the MCU. Below you will find an EEPROM Memory Map.  This Memory Map shows you what each memory location is used for.  The valid parameter

AD1216 Analog to Digital Converter Quick Start Guide

AD1216 Analog to Digital Conversion Command Set WARNING: A/D Inputs can accept a voltage from 0 to 5VDC. You should NEVER exceed this voltage range. Negative voltages will damage the A/D inputs. Power the controller BEFORE applying voltages to these inputs. Applying voltages to these inputs while the controller is powered down may result in permanent damage to the CPU. USB ProXR Control with Analog to Digital Conversion 16-Channel USB 16-Channel 8-Bit/12-Bit Analog to Digital Converter + XR Expansion Port Product Code: ZAD1216ProXR_USB NOTE: All Inputs Labeled “A” are GROUND Inputs. All Inputs Labeled “B” are 0-5VDC Analog Inputs. NEVER
