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

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

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

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
