Control and monitor 8 optically isolated inputs and 8 (SPDT) high-current Form C relay outputs via any USB connection with the 8232. Inputs can range from 5-30VDC and optical isolation protects the computer and other sensitive equipment from voltage transients and ground loops that are common in industrial environments. The high-current Form C relays can switch up to 6A loads at 250VAC and up to 5A at 30VDC. Form C relays can be wired for either normally open or normally closed operation.
SeaDAC modules are housed in a rugged, attractive plastic enclosure and include a highly-retentive USB Type B connector to prevent accidental disconnection. The 8232 is USB bus powered, so no external power supply is needed. Standard operating temperature range of SeaDAC modules is 0C to +70C and extended temperature range (-40C to +85C) is optional.
The SeaMAX software suite supports the SeaDAC family and is designed to work with third party applications via the SeaMAX API software libraries, or use any Modbus RTU compliant device. Sealevel’s SeaMAX software drivers and utilities make installation and operation easy using Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
