This is a software tool designed specifically for the DIN-RYx-N relay controller series. Among the features of this tool are automatic device discovery, device status, firmware update, general device settings, relay interlocks, setting different dry contact modes, macros/rules, user variables, serial port configuration and USB connection security.
There are 3 methods of connection available to the hardware - network(TCP Client), serial and USB. Click the “Connection Settings” option on the top-right corner of the window. Choose your method of connection and input the relevant connection details i.e. IP Address or Baud Rate Settings. Once connected, you will see the green colour connected status led.
There is also an optional Address Book for you to save all your commonly used connection details for quick recall and reconnection.
This area basically shows you all the general information and port status of the relay, load and dry contact on the device. It also shows available memory for macros, rules and user variables. Test buttons are also available here for testing the individual relay channels.
You can change the device ID by selecting the available ID from the drop-down selection and then clicking the Assign ID button. When changes happens on the device such as relay actions, AC Load and dry contact status - you can specify the mode for the feedback that comes back.
There are 2 feedback modes available - basic and verbose. Basic mode will only send details on the individual ports that are changed whereas verbose mode will send details on all ports every time a change to the ports are detected.
This special feature gives you the option to interlock a group of minimum 2 relays channels so that only one relay can be active at a time. This is especially useful for applications like screen control where you do not want to accidentally activate different directional motors at the same time.
This allows the dry contact mode to be set to 3 different feedback status modes where advanced event triggering can be done.
Macros consists of multiple actions with adjustable delay timers and conditional checking options. They can be triggered either via rules or direct command. Option to backup and to restore macros are available as well.
Rules will trigger macros based on feedback and status of feedback or events happening to the device. Option to backup and to restore rules are available as well.
User variables to store values as tokens or preset values that are to be recalled on startup or runtime.
This window consists of options to set the serial ports to different modes (BUS Control Mode, Third-Party RS232/Full/Half Duplex, CFLink) and to adjust the settings of the baud rates as well.
A security feature to prevent unauthorized users to plug-in to the USB port and establishing a connection to modify or change any settings.
Displays all the decent activity and event logs of the device. Can copy out the selected line of log and also option to test by sending out custom commands.
Updating the firmware of the device either through the online or manual method.
