A new tiny 8-ch Dry-Contact I/O device: IA-1214-U

A new enhanced 8-ch Dry-Contact I/O device designed by Intelligent Appliance, is now available for purchase on Online-Devices.com.

The new module's main features includes 4 SPDT Relays and 4 Digital Inputs, powered and controlled by its v.2.0 USB port, inclosed in a very compact plastic enclosure in order to fit even the most space challenged applications.


I/O functionality for this tiny USB module includes wide range Digital Inputs, with voltage protection in the range of +/-36VDC, handling both Dry-Contact and Wet-Contact inputs. The device Relays are of SPDT kind, C, NO, NC contacts, rated at 2Amp @ 30VDC and 0.5Amp @ 125VAC.

As a member of the Intelligent-Appliance 3000 Series, the new USB controller is compatible with the wider set of commands such as: timed controlled relays operation, Digital Input conditional Relays operation, Automatic Report functions and more.

There is no need for an external power source for monitoring and operating the relays, as the IA-1214-U operated by its USB post, while using the software utilities provided.

In the software support package for the IA-1214-U you can find the Visual Studio DOT.net driver, Labview driver, I/O state Monitoring and Relays activation Utilities, as well as Open Code software examples in order to help you implement this new module into your application quickly and easily.

This new addition to our wide variety of USBoperated I/O modules, was designed and manufactured by Intelligent-Appliance, an innovative well known company, focused mainly on designing and manufacturing solutions for ATE, Factory Floor and Building Control application.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
