The module has ten 5V channels that individually can be set to either an input or an output.
Each output can have a pulse automatically generated.
Each channel can have a protection timer associated with it which turns it off after a specified time. This can be used as a security feature so that a critical controlled resource is not kept on when a communication line has been lost but can be used to keep an output on for a specific time for other uses.
TurnOn/TurnOff or On/Off events can be generated when signals go high/low. This is valid both for inputs and outputs. Perfect for monitoring systems or for autonomous control of other VSCP modules.
Alarm events can be generated when a pin change state. Perfect for alarm setups.
State of inputs/outputs can be streamed with configurable time interval.
Inputs can be used as button inputs with repeat.
The Beijing module have a decision matrix with eight entries that can set a pin high or low, toggle a pin, send status for a pin or all pins, or turn on/off pulse on a pin. This makes it easy to construct autonomous systems.
The module can be wall mounted or attached to a DIN rail as all modules in the CAN4VSCP series from Paradise of the Frog.
Here’s what everyone knows about the Internet of Things. It’s going to be enormous. We’ll have tens of billions of devices by the end of the decade. This is a multi-trillion dollar opportunity over the next few years. All the major players in consumer electronics, mobile, cloud, factory automation, enterprise IT and more will be fiercely competing for a piece of that pie. All this information shouts: if your company doesn’t have an IoT strategy you might as well quit.
Last day to put in an application for the IDEA IoT Challenge so i put in one for the VSCP & Friends framework. Bu as soon as I send it away I ask myself “How can something that is ready to deliver today have a chance in a competition like this when everyone else just still talks about what IoT is!? Stupid of me… To late to withdraw it I suppose… 😉
But if you have an IoT idea go ahead, fill in the info.
