Ethernet 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

Fusion ProXR Advanced Quick Start Guide

Introduction Introducing the Fusion ProXR Advanced relay control command set.  The ProXR Advanced command set is what allows users to develop software to control relays for Fusion series controllers.  Based on the ProXR Enhanced command set, the ProXR Advanced command set has new commands and new command options that greatly extend your ability to control more relays with fewer commands. Out with the Old We thinned down the command set so it would not contain as many redundant commands as the ProXR and ProXR Enhanced devices.  This saved space in the CPU that was better reserved for new features.  The
