Contact Closure Input Quick Start Guide

Introduction NCD Devices with Contact Closure Input monitoring capabilities will use this command set to read no less than 8 contact closure inputs with a single query.  This includes the ZSCAN series controllers and any NCD Devices equipped with a UXP Expansion Port (Fusion and ProXR UXP) and a USCS16, USCS32, or USCS48 contact closure input expansion board. This SCAN Series command set allows the user to read anywhere from 1 to 32 banks of 8 inputs in a single query.  A single bank contains 8 inputs.  Reading 32 banks will report the status of 256 inputs. This command has

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

AD8 8-Channel Analog to Digital Converter Quick Start Guide

AD8 Introduction Many NCD controllers include AD8 features, AD8 is a standardized grouping of 8 analog inputs, used for reading sensors and switches.  NCD controllers with AD8 features include many ProXR controllers, all ProXR Lite controllers, and all Fusion series controllers.  All controllers with AD8 capabilities will allow you to use the same command set shown in this guide, allowing your controller to read any sensor with a 0-5VDC analog output.  AD8 controllers feature 8-Channels of analog to digital conversion at 8-bit or 10-bit resolution (software selectable).  AD8 controllers are also capable of reading contact closure inputs, making our controllers

Fusion Essentials Quick Start Guide

Introduction The Fusion® Series is our fourth generation relay controller offering the ultimate relay control solution . . . without exception. Fusion controllers are the most powerful relay controllers we have ever manufactured.  While the learning curve is modest, there are key elements that must be discussed as a foundation to any Fusion series controller.  This guide should be considered a starting point for understanding and using the Fusion series controllers.  We strongly encourage all Fusion users to review this guide carefully, as many important questions are answered that are pertinent to the initial use of Fusion Series controllers.

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

API Codec Quick Start Guide

What is the API Codec? If you are working with TCP/IP or Wireless communications, you might want to consider using the API Codec to handle all communication functions.  The API Codec will “wrap” standard commands with a Header, Byte Counter, and a Checksum, which eliminates the need for timeout command processing (the standard method of communications which stalls processing of commands). he API Codec is a faster, more reliable method of communicating to NCD devices, particularly when working with network- or wireless-based devices.  The API Codec makes communications more resilient to errors and eliminates timeout requirements of standard communication methods.

I2C Communications Quick Start Guide

Introduction I2C communications is a integral part of communicating to sensors and peripheral devices.  Learning to implement I2C Communications in combination with NCD devices allows users to expand their relay controllers into sensor monitoring and control applications.  One of the greatest benefits of I2C communications is the simple protocol for talking to external devices.  Since many manufacturers generate sensors and chips that support I2C communications, it is possible to monitor and control thousands of different external devices by simply learning a few simple commands. NCD is manufacturing and developing many controllers that support I2C communications.  Most notably, Fusion series controllers all include at
