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.
