General purpose RS232 serial port IO controller board with 8 relay outputs and 4 opto-isolated inputs for use in a wide variety of control and sensing applications including load switching, external switch input sensing, contact closure and external voltage sensing.
The eight relay channels provide output control and are independent of the digital input channels giving you the flexibility to setup the linkage any way you choose in the control software.
The 3108 hardware is not programmable and has no memory. The hardware acts in response to commands sent to it by RS232 serial interface (e.g. turning on some relays and polling the status of inputs). After acting on an instruction, the board will remain in that state until a new command is received (even if the comms connection is broken and re-established).Features
* The relays are rated to switch up to 240Vac mains voltage but the exposed screw terminal block heads would need to be placed inside a suitable enclosure to prevent exposure to hazardous voltages.Specifications
