The USB-Relay-8 is a compact USB 2.0 module in a plastic housing with 8 relay outputs for low switching capacities up to max. 1 A. A number of status LEDs visualize the switching states of the relays. The connection wiring is done via two 8 pole pluggable screw terminals.

  • 8 *Relay outputs NO (36V DC / 1A / 10 W)
  • Galvanic isolation between contact and coil: 1.5 kV RMS /1 min
  • Timeout protection function
  • LED status display per output channel

Relay outputs

Reed relays with normally open (NO) function are used in this product. They are suitable for smaller switching capacities and achieve well over 100 million switching cycles. The electrical isolation between input and output circuit is up to 1.5kV.

 

Timeout-protection-function    [Single channel adjustable new feature since 2020/Q4!]

If communication with the DEDITEC module is interrupted in a timeout case, the timeout protection function takes effect. It can be set for each digital output whether it is to be “switched off”, “switched on” or left unchanged. Motors can thus be switched off in a timeout case, for example, and connected horns or other alarm transmitters can be switched on.

 

New timeout modes    [New feature since 2021/Q3!]

3 different timeout modes: “normal”, “auto reactive” and “secure outputs” for different procedures in case of a timeout event.
In “secure outputs” timeout mode, access to the outputs is blocked after a timeout event, thus preventing further access to the outputs.
Unlocking must be done by an additional software command.

 


LEDs

Each digital input and output has a separate LED that lights up when the signal state is active. Furthermore, the status of the operating voltage, the communication with the interface, error events or the occurrence of a timeout can be displayed.


Connectors

Pluggable screw terminals are used as connectors. Conductor cross-sections of up to 3.3mm² can be connected. The two flange screw connections provide additional support.

Configuration

Configuration of USB modules

Products with USB interface are automatically recognized by the DELIB driver library. A configuration is only necessary if several identical USB products are to be used on the same system.

 


Several identical USB modules on one system

Each of our USB products has the module number “0” in the delivery state. When using more than one USB module on a PC / system, a new module number must first be assigned to each additional module. This assignment is done with our DELIB configuration utility. Only in this way can a clear assignment be made by the software. The module number is stored permanently in the product. Up to 255 identical modules can be used on one system.


More details about the control and some programming examples can be found in the programming section.

timeout protection function

DapiSpecialCommand - DapiSpecialCMDTimeout
This command is used to set the timeout protection function.

DapiSpecialCommand-DapiSpecialCMDTimeout

 

Description

This command is used to set the timeout protection function.

There are three different timeout methods since 2021.

 

“normal” timeout
This is the timeout that our modules already have since 2009.
Procedure for the timeout command:
The timeout is activated by command.
If then a so-called timeout event takes place (pause between two accesses to the module is greater than the allowed timeout time) the following happens:
– All outputs are switched off.
– The timeout status goes to “2”.
– The timeout LED turns on (for modules that have such a status).
Further accesses to the outputs are then still possible, but the timeout is no longer active. Not again until it has been reactivated.

 

“auto reactivate” timeout
This is a timeout mode implemented since 2021 that automatically reactivates the timeout after the timeout event occurs.
Procedure for the timeout command:
The timeout is activated by command.
If then a so-called timeout event occurs (pause between two accesses to the module is greater than the allowed timeout time) the following happens:
– All outputs are switched off.
– The timeout status goes to “4”.
– The timeout LED turns on (for modules that have such a status).
Further accesses to the outputs are then still possible. AND the timeout is still active. If the timeout time is exceeded again, the outputs are switched off again.

 

“secure outputs” timeout
This is a timeout mode implemented since 2021, which prevents write access to the outputs after the timeout event has occurred.This ensures that the software must first restore a “secure” state of the outputs, since the module’s timeout mechanism has changed the outputs to predefined values.
Procedure for the timeout command:
The timeout is activated by command.
If then a so-called timeout event takes place(pause between two accesses to the module is greater than the allowed timeout time) the following happens:
– All outputs are switched off.
– The timeout status goes to “6”.
– The timeout LED turns on (for modules that have such a status).
Further access to the outputs is NOT possible. Only after reactivating the timeout or deactivating the timeout the outputs can be written.

DapiSpecialCommand - DapiSpecialTimeoutActivateAutoReactivate
This command activates the "auto reactivate" timeout

DapiSpecialCommand – DapiSpecialTimeoutActivateAutoReactivate

 

Description
This command activates the “auto reactivate” timeout.
In this mode, the timeout is automatically reactivated after the timeout event.
After the timeout event.
– ..all outputs are switched off
– ..the timeout status is set to “4
– ..the timeout LED is switched on (for modules that have such a status)
Further accesses to the outputs are then still possible AND the timeout is still active.

8-times relay powermodule (switching capacity 40V/10A), which can be controlled by relays/opto-couplers

The MOD-REL8_10A has eight changeover relays with a switching capacity of 48V/10A AC or 48V/8A DC. It can be used as additional power stage for our digital output modules. The normally open contacts of a digital output module, e.g. a RO-USB-REL16, are simply connected in parallel to the inputs of this power stage. Additionally this module requires a power supply of 24V DC.

  • Power stage for all digital output modules
  • 8 change-over contact relay (CO) / 48V / 10A AC/DC
  • 24V power supply
  • Pluggable terminal strips for the connection wiring
  • Potential-free inputs (no control voltage required)

USB watchdog stick with 2 relays for shift operations

This USB-WATCHDOG-STICK monitors your operating PC or server and can reset the hardware independently in case of a program crash. Simply integrate the function of the Watchdog Stick into your application. As soon as a timeout occurs and the watchdog stick is no longer periodically reset, the two relay outputs are switched through. With an appropriate connection cabling, for example, the PC reset could be activated, an external SMS modem can send warnings or a connected siren signals an alarm. With the help of our free configuration tool, you can define how the relays should switch in case of an error.

  • USB 2.0 / USB 1.1 interface
  • Watchdog function
  • Monitoring your control PC or server
  • Timeout times adjustable from 10ms to 10h
  • Windows Watchdog API
  • 2 NO contact relay (NO)
