K8056 – 8-Channel Relay Interface Card Kit (Standalone/RF/RS232)
The K8056 8-Channel Relay Interface Card SELF-ASSEMBLY electronic kit can be used in several ways : stand alone card, addressed by switches or open collector outputs or remote controlled through RS232.
An optional RF remote control function is possible by adding an RX433N Receiver Module to the card. This then allows the card to be controlled via RF with the 8-Channel RF Remote Control KIT (K8058), 8-Channel RF Remote Transmitter MODULE (VM118R) or USB to RF Remote Control KIT (K8074).
Since the card can be addressed using RS232 commands, you may write custom applications in any programming language on any platform.
Test software can be downloaded from our web site.
Also available in PRE-ASSEMBLED Electronic Module format WITHOUT the RS232 interface (Order Code VM129).
