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

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

Arduino Micro Quick Start Guide

Arduino Micro is the another Arduino board which is directly supported by NCD. Most of the NCD devices works directly with it. NCD supports over 40+ relay shields, PWM drivers, sensors, current monitoring, voltage monitoring and much more. All of these devices are plug and play so you can use these board with Arduino micro just plugging one cable. Mainly NCD provides 2 shields which will let you connect your Arduino with all the NCD devices. Using Arduino Micro I2C Shield This I2C Shield comes with 3 row header pins, so you can plug your Arduino micro in it and still can access all

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
