PT-100 Module for I/O Extension Box

The new PT-100 expansion module for the I/O Extension Box is available now.


Up to two PT100 sensors (PTC resistance thermometers to DIN EN 60751:2009-05) can be connected per PT100 module; the IO Extension Box has five module places. Both the PT-100 modules, as well as the Extension Box feature an extended temperature range.

Simple GUI software for the universal I/O-Box

To help you get started using the I/O Box, we have developed a simple application.
The capabilities of the I/O Box are very extensive. The simple GUI tool uses the basic functionality of the box.
With this tool, you can now handle values ​​or set signal states in no time.



Of course, we will also develop custom software to your needs.

The ipcas I/O Box is extremely flexible. The modular design allows easy adaptation to your individual needs. Digital and analog input and output modules are available for configuration as well as a PT100 module.
The Box communicates via USB and Ethernet.

The simple GUI tool is now available for download on the product page and at the support area.

USB Input Device – now available with DIN rail clamp

The USB Input Device is now also available with DIN rail clamp.

USB-Input-Device with DIN-rail-clamp

The small-sized device with its extended temperature range (-40° to +70° Celsius) and simple DIN rail mounting application enables flexible use in practically any location.

The USB Input Device has been specially designed for industrial use and is ideally suitable for the data acquisition and evaluation of digital input signals. Besides, temperature sensors and meters with S0 interfaces (e.g. utility meters for power, gas, and water) can be immediately connected.

USB Input Device: New firmware software

USB Input Device: New firmware and software
We have improved the USB-Input-Device software and firmware.

The most significant innovations are the commands get pattern and set counter.

Retrieves the digital input state as pattern with Get pattern. The current input state must have not changed.
Set counter allows to set the counter to a desired value. Counting starts from this value.

Both functions can be used as a direct command or with the new configuration tools.

In addition, other innovations have been introduced. Here is a short list:

Log Communication

Log Communication

Customized item logging into a file LogFile.txt (Log to File) is possible, now.

Get Pattern / Event Filter

Get Pattern / Event Filter

With Get Pattern the pattern status for all digital inputs can be retrieved manually.
In addition, with "Event Filter" update messages of individual digital inputs can be specifically excluded.



The state of a digital input can be requested specifically with the buttons GetStateBit0 … GetStateBit5.

Set Counter

Set Counter

With "Set to Counter", the counter can be set to a desired value.

Temperatures Start/Stop

Temperatures Start/Stop

Interrupt the cyclic transmission of a temperature value with the Stop button. With the Start button the temperature value is again transferring cyclically.
For example, if the transmission cycle is 10 minutes and only one minute of the cycle has passed, click start/stop and do not wait nine minutes to get a new temperature value.
