Relays are yet another way to
control external devices. Relays might be used
to control Page Turning devices, Door Strike
devices, Window / Shade devices, or may even
be used to activate your burglar alarm system.
Angel FX provides nine
Relays, within the main unit, that can be used
for general purpose device control. Six of these
nine relays are intended to be used for Bed
Control, but if you are not controlling a bed,
then they are available for external device
control. Two of the nine relays are intended
for general control purposes, and the isolated
relay contacts appear on a Phoenix connector
for easy connection to your external equipment.
One of FIVE operating functions
can be assigned as a single relay command; Set,
Clear, Toggle, Follow Input B, or Timed Pulse.
(timer resolution is 1/10th of a second) Relay
commands can be sent individually, by "clicking"
on a single ICON or text menu line, or any number
of them (up to 32) can be programmed into a
"sequence" which allows up to 32 events to be
executed in response to a single input from
the user. Angel FX can store up to 1,000 sequences
of up to 32 events each. It is possible to view
the current status of the main relays at any
time by adding the "Relay Status" ICON to the
Each I/O Pod also provides two
sets of isolated relay contacts for general
purpose use. Up to 10 I/O Pods can be connected
to the system at the same time to provide up
to 20 additional sets of isolated relay contacts.
