The I/O Modules offer a fast and efficient way of remotely controlling other devices by way of a TCP/IP net and can be used for the surveillance of remote units, such as schools, health centers, hospitals, sports centers, banks, supermarkets, public installations, or any other environment that needs special surveillance.
Basically, this device offers input ports (dry contacts), output ports (relays), and an Ethernet port, which will transmit the data to the surveillance center by way of a local, optical fiber or wireless networks, in addition to private data lines or Internet. However, the number of functionalities that we can imagine with these three types of ports is infinite, such as, for example:
- Monitoring of sensors and activation of lighting combined with IP cameras
- Opening and closing of doors, exhibitor curtains and gates
- Control of pumps, valves, and motors
- Control of devices by way of the web or local networks
- Remote initialization of computers, servers, routers, switches and other informatics equipment
- Integration of I/O and remote connection of digital outputs of any CLP, industrial or residential
- Extension of remote activation buttons and switches
- Industrial control of supervisory programs
- Residential and commercial automation
- Panic button.
The basis of the functioning of the devices lies in the recognition of some event, by way of various types of sensors and buttons. When an event is detected, this information is passed on to the Digifort server, which will carry out a pre-configured action. This action can involve the internal resources of the software, such as the sending of e-mail or SMS messages, devices interconnected to the security net, like positioning movable cameras to a determined point; or even the actual I / O device such as trigger a siren or trigger an engine.
