  • Dear Sirs

    I am looking for an RS232 controlled relay card. I would like the card to have a timer feature.

    I can set the relay to operate by a command for a fixed period, say 5 minutes. If the unit does not receive another pulse command from the host in this time the relay drops out. If it does receive a command in this period it starts the 5 minute timer again.

    I want to use the board as a watchdog timer.

    Thanks

    Mike Clery

    Can you help.
