The Keene KIRACC Contact Closure module provides a number of ways to control devices via local network and the internet. Commands can be issued simply by accessing the built in web pages via any device with a browser. The open API structure means it can integrate seamlessly with a number of other IP control systems and apps for tables and smart phones.
Infra Red over IP either real time IR receive/transmit over IP used in conjunction with another KIRA module, or use IP control to blast any of the 150 IR codes stored within the on-board memory
Two IR emitter outputs, individually routable
20 macro commands, each up to 30 steps
Built-in dedicated high accuracy IR code learning receiver.
Two isolated relay contacts, each rated at 48V 6A.
The relays can be set to open, close or pulse with configurable timings.
Both relays feature pluggable Phoenix connectors for easy installation.
Contains a TCP/IP to RS232 server that can be used as an RS232 / TCPIP bridge.
RS232 strings can be stored into on-board memory and triggered by IP from an app or as part of a macro.
Built in Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability
Can act as a TCP/IP target for IR Anywhere modules
Built-in support for a dynamic DNS client to cater for non-static IP addresses
Strong ABS case with flanges for quick and reliable installation.
Two isolated relay contacts 48V 6A max each
Pluggable Phoenix connectors for easy installation
Can be set to open closed or can be pulsed
Pulse time can be set in 1/4 second intervals up to 1 minute. Pulse will invert current state for the time required.
Can be set to start up open or closed with a delay.
2 individually routable IR outputs.
Each output can drive twin emitters.
Can be used as an source for the Keene IR distribution amplifiers with correct lead.
Support for baud rates up to 115200.
Can be used as an RS232 / TCPIP bridge.
RS232 strings can be stored into eeprom memory and used from an app and as part of a macro
150+ memory locations
Can store IR codes up to 128 bit to include Air Conditioning control
Can store RS232 strings up to 256 chrs
Can store relay set commands or relay pulse commands
Can store macros
Enhanced macro support
Macros can reference anything that can be stored into a memory location whether RS232 string, relay state change or IR codes.
Step pause can be set for each step.
Up to 20 macros
Up to 30 steps per macro
Flash based web pages
Access to module set-up
Web button access to the stored memory locations and macros
UDP based API available
Can be accessed from most networkable devices.
Allows easy use for mobile Apps and fixed applications
Built in support for 'pronto' style IR codes
IR codes macros, relay set, clear, pulse can all be sent via the API as well as stored in memory
