hub powered, modular relay control board.
(4 x): 5 Amp 30VDC, 5Amp 250V AC
omron mechanical relays.
FTDI USB module (dlls for most OSs)
on LED, relay indicator LEDs
cable not included.
super4 USB relay board is driven over USB directly (not virtual com port).
Each board is uniquely identified via its' serial number string, this can
be changed using TCTECs RelayMapper application, making replacement of
boards easy and programming simple to understand.
indoor low voltage applications, The Super4 fits inside Jaycar cat: JP6011
polycarbonate enclosure in an appliance control application.
20mm (22 mm hole) cable gland for the USB plug (fits a type-B plug). Use
cable glands of required size for other wiring (example shows 1 for input
cable and 1 for output cable).
glands facing down for water proofing and drainage. Board is tacked in
place with silicone, after USB is plugged in and relays wired.
wanting to sound alarms for secondary dispatch(911 calls). We receive call
information through email and will use Microsoft Outlook to make a rule
to print the message and activate a relay through usb(an idea) to sound
external alarms through-out the fire stations. Does this sound like it
will work with the Super4 USB Relay Module, if so, how difficult will it
be to setup programming?
Microsoft outlook rule can be set to 'start application', if the email
meets the specified criteria.
application that is started can be a batch file called 'sound_alarm.bat'
with the following line in it:
files\tctec\relayset.exe -salarm,01 -t10000
above example will switch on relay one, of the relay board called 'alarm'
for 10 seconds.
this case, relayset.exe is located in C:\program files\tctec\

me know if I can help further.
about the Super4. Does the board/switch hold it's state during a
power disconnect. For example:
1 = On
2 = Off
3 = On
4 = On
these states remain when power is disconnected from the board or will we
need to manage the state after accidental power disconnects?
relays are non-latching, so when power is lost they default to the off
C source code for lrelayset.exe is on our webstite http://www.emx.net.au/page426.htm
uses the ftdi linux library:http: libftd2xx.so
than use the libftd2xx.so library, a compilable C - library is available
to interface the FT232RL chip directly. http://www.intra2net.com/en/developer/libftdi/
has been used to control the super4 under Debian for example.
The super4 uses the FT232RL serial to USB converter in 'bit-bang' mode.
