We have purchased several Industrial High-Power Relay Controller(s) 2-Channel + UXP Expansion Port(s) with the SKU of ZUXPR220PROXR. For communications we are using the Ethernet to Serial Communications Module - New Gen 3 that has an SKU of NCD5500.
At this point we have successfully communicated with the NCD5500 using the configuration software, and when we access the relay controller using the Alpha Station software, on the Select Communication page, the device is discovered and displayed just fine. However, once the OK button is selected, a new window is displayed showing sections for Identifiers, Utilities and Control Panels. Only the Control Panels section contains any values which are Sensor View and Setup and Communications Recovery which is basically of little use for controlling relays. The documentation that I’ve been able to look at, go on to discuss sensor control and monitoring with little or no information on accessing and controlling relays.
I believe that between the NCD Base Station software and Quick Start Guide, Alpha Station software, ProXR Standard software, ProXR Enhanced software, NCD5500 Ethernet Module Web Interface User Guide, NCD Gen3 Ethernet Module User Guide and the NCD5500 Config Tool Software, I have become a bit confused as to which set of information I should pay attention to.
I would think there would be a way that is a bit more straightforward to access these two relays. Does anyone have a valid suggestion that may help with communicating with this controller board?
