Control any relays remotely
In industrial environments or modern automation systems and home automation, it happens that you need to control remote relays to open gates, turn on lights and motors, operate irrigation systems, barriers, air conditioning systems and any emergency systems.
With the increasing presence of TCP/IP networks is important that these functions can be performed using the flexibility of an existing ethernet cabling in a building, an industry, and now also in an office in a home.
Thanks to the relay boards that work on an Ethernet network is very simple to connect and remotely control relays or read the value returned by a sensor.
But how does it work?
The relay board is equipped with an onboard Web Server, that has its own IP address and therefore can be controlled and monitored simply by opening your browser and connecting to the IP address of the board, or you can check and change the status of the relay through software applications, developed with programming languages such as C, C + +, PHP,. NET, Java, and many others, that interact with the same through the use of simple APIs (application programming interfaces).
Setup and using of these modern input/output over IP boards is very similar to a router or a common IP camera and drive the relays via Web is really simple.
There are virtually no distance limits between the user and the device to control remotely, thanks to a correct configuration of the IP relay board with the parameters of your network, you can control any relays remotely, also via Internet, using a PC or a mobile phone without installing additional software.
Input/Output boards over IP
I/O boards over IP are also very usefull for digital/analog signal acquisition of any sensors in the industry environment, directly from an appplication that runs on a PC or other devices connected to the LAN.
The status of each input and each output can be read and/or modified at any time on your local network or remotely.
The Web Server of these boards also provides a simple and intuitive control to read the status of different sensors connected directly to the digital or analog inputs providing a system for monitoring remote sensors in a easy and quick way.
Use of Ethernet interface and Web protocols that modern I/O cards on IP have on board can be easily integrated into third parties applications in any operating system to build own remote control or supervision of systems over IP.
As the classical PLC input / output over IP management cards have the inputs and outputs opto-isolated to reduce any electromagnetic interference and improve the reliability and quality of the data read from the sensors connected to them.
ingNET has engineered their own solution to control remotely I/O over IP not only producing PADI, the I/O board controlled from Web integrable into third-party software using the API dedicated operating on HTTP protocol, but also creating the platform for CCTV and I/O control over IP iCare that aggregates all informations of many I/O cards over IP PADI connected in a network (ie, the values returned by the sensors and / or the status of the relay outputs) in a single application of supervision and remote control over IP systems entirely WEB managed.
