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.

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.

USB Input Device – USB I/O

The USB Input Device (USB I/O) provides universal interfaces for recording digital input signals directly (and analog signals via converter)
through the USB connection of a PC or embedded system. The device has been uniquely designed for industrial deployment, and is
especially suitable for data acquisition, assessment of control signals as well as for post-processing of S0 signals, for example,
from thermistors, water meters and kilowatt-hour power meters.

Equipped with 6 digital ports (24 V DC) and 6 thermistor inputs (for DS18S20) via one-wire bus, it can be used to record any
kind of input values. Bit patterns, counted measurands, and events are relayed directly via USB interfaces to a server where they
can be visualized, evaluated and processed.

The voltage supply for the USB Input Device is provided via USB. Sensors, thermistors and clocks are attached with spring clips.
With these properties and its compact design the USB Input Device is your ideal companion also suitable for mobile deployment.
The intuitive and easily understandable configuration software allows you to adjust the settings of the various ports
(e.g., S0 interval, temperature measurements, etc.) to suit your individual requirements.

The USB input device as metering solution for on the S0 interface of kilowatt-hour-meters.

LINUX Box LB3 – Intelligent IO Ethernet Solution

One device – Numerous possibilities, Embedded System
with digital and analog IO’s.

The LINUX Box LB3 is a full-fledged industrial PC with a pre-installed Linux operating system and a DIN rail case mounting design.
The LB3 has been specially conceived for installation in switching cabinets of machines, plants, and buildings. Windows CE or Free
Dos can also be used as alternatives to the Linux operating system. In its basic version the LB3 is equipped with 128MB RAM and
an additional 128MB ROM (CompactFlash) which can be optionally expanded. Due to its numerous integrated interfaces such as USB,
Ethernet, serial/parallel interfaces or the digital IO´s and the possibility to extend IO’s with an IO Extension Box, the LB3’s
function range covers most of the applications frequently requested by customers. Among them are notable applications such as:

  • Telecontrol devices (RTU’s / Remote Terminal Units)
  • Log converters
  • Offline / Online – data loggers
  • Offline / Online – event loggers
  • Property management systems
  • Network routers
  • Platform for individual solutions
  • customer-specific implementation

Speacial feature: Extended temperature range from -40° to +70° Celsius.
