PowerAnt: Teach Your computer To drive The real World
PowerAnt is control from personal computer, using RS232 port, from 14 and more external electrical devices. Open, Human-Readable protocol, it is fully described in programmer's manual. Control of electrical equipment with power supply near 200W. You Wish control the real world from MS Excel?

PowerAnt types

  • SwSe (8 switches + 6 sensors)
  • SwSw (8 + 6 switches)
  • SeSe (8 + 6 sensors)
  • Quantity of input/output lines can be easyly extended by connecting PowerAnts between them

    The main type of PowerAnt is SwSe. It has good quantity of the switches and sensors for most of all applications.

    Switch executions

    PowerAnt has four switch executions. Three with optocouplers and one without optocoupler. We do not recommend use switches with no optocouplers.

    If you need to connect more than 7 PowerAnts, you can refuse additional power supply +12V for the benefit of main power supply. After that you can connect to one BaseStation port 12 PowerAnts.

    Sensors

    To sensor you can connect two wires. Closure of this wires mean the sensor is On. For sensors you do not need any additional supply required. Our sensor is fast and can detects signal length near 80E-6 sec.

    Switches

    Executions of PowerAnt switches:

  • Without optocoupler - command from computer arrives, the voltage between contact electrodes of the switch is 5V (logical 1 level). If the switch is off - the voltage between contact electrodes of the switch is 0V (logical 0 level). In both state the current between contact electrodes are not higher than 20mA.
  • With optocoupler - when the command from computer arrives, the resistance between contact electrodes of the switch falls practically up to nil. For these switches You can connect DC 5-60V, current less than 50mA. In this execution, using jumpers, You can select power supply: +5V or additional supply from BaseStation. Also You can select the external power supply.
  • Optocoupler 100+ - when the command from computer arrives, the resistance between contact electrodes of the switch falls practically up to nil (26 Om). This switch can be used to control electrical devices with AC/DC 220V and current less than 130mA. In this execution, using jumpers, You can select power supply: +5V or additional supply from BaseStation. Also You can select the external power supply.
  • Super optocoupler - when the command from computer arrives, the resistance between contact electrodes of the switch falls practically up to nil. This switch can be used to control electrical devices with AC 220V, 200W power supply (current up to 1A). If You connect device with current greater than 1A, You destroy only one switch.

    Standard PowerAnt set

    All PowerAnts has power led, switch and sensors state leds, two RJ45 connectors for connecton to BaseStation or other PowerAnts.

    Firmware subversions

  • c - high speed decrement counter
  • adc - Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) on K, L, M, N sensors.
  • r20 - External watchdog counter for control computer.

    Other PowerAnt types

    We can develop other type of PowerAnts for you needs. Just ask as about it.
