Maximizing Performance of NCD ProXR Relay Controllers

ProXR controllers have been the standard for relay control applications for many years.  Over the years, we have improved firmware to add functionality.  Several years ago, we migrated from a PIC16F690 processor to a PIC18F46K22 processor, which has more memory and runs 4 times faster.  After this migration, we found it necessary to slow down the CPU to safer levels, as older software was not able to handle the ultra-low latency of the new CPU.  NCD ProXR relay controllers have the ability to perform much faster by tuning a few settings.  This guide will help you get the most performance

WiFi Push Notification Quick Start Guide

Introduction What is the Push Notification Series? The push notification series was designed for customers requiring contact closure input monitoring via push notification rather than a query based method. This means your application is free to process other tasks while listening for input status change. This opens the door to many new and exciting applications such as email/text message notification, data logging, security monitoring, and much more. These controllers can be configured to send information to a specific server via internet connection when their input status changes, or alternatively they can broadcast their input status change across all devices a
