Railduino 2.1 - LAN
5784.3 VAT excl.
Input / Output module based on Arduino platform
24x digital inputs, 12x relay outputs, 8x digital outputs, 2x analog inputs, 2x analog outputs, 1-wire, RS485, Ethernet ...
Railduino module is a device working in connection with superior control system (e.g. Loxone) as so called distributed inputs / outputs. With this connection the control system is able to control external devices (e.g. lights, pumps etc.) using outputs or sense the values at the inputs of the module (e.g. buttons, contacts etc.).
Module is equipped with both digital and analog inputs. There are also relay, digital and analog outputs - see the table below. Module can handle 1-wire devices (Maxim/Dallas) as favourite temperature sensors DS18B20 or DS2438 (Unica 1wire sens. module).
Inputs/outputs can be read/controlled by communication bus RS485 or by LAN within computer network. Both types of connections communicate using UDP protocol (User defined protocol). There can be connected up to 15 Railduino modules within the same network/bus.
Version 2.1 - better protection of internal power supply, removed bug for L4 output, improved EMC compatibility
Features and functions:
- 24x digital inputs - optically separated, max. input voltage 24V DC

3. "Is it possible to connect more then one Railduino to the same bus?"
I have using 2 v1.3 railduino's in my home automation system for over 3 years without any Issues. <br /> They are coupled to my loxone system using UDP broadcasting over my dedicated home automation network.<br /> I can only recommend these!
I'm using 4 Railduino's in my house and garden, for more then 2 years. without any problem. All togheter with Loxone. <br /> Like the title says there is a big problem, the system is so good and easy to inegrate that I always want to do more, ...<br /> <br /> I'm using it for:<br /> Controlling heating system 1Wire sensors in buffer tanks<br /> PWM (version 1.3) signals to the solar pump, <br /> Relay's for valves and three way valves<br /> blinds<br /> irrigation system<br /> Bath valves and three way valves to fill the bath<br /> switching on the pool filtering system and heating system<br /> and ofcourse Lights inside and outside.
Have been using this module together with Loxone miniserver and it works flawlessly.<br /> <br /> I'm using the module to control the following things in my home<br /> - Relay Outputs are used to control my ventilation unit<br /> - Relay Outputs are used to control my 230v lighting<br /> - Digital inputs are used for my standard push buttons<br /> - 1Wire is used together with DS18B20 sensors all around my house behind the light switches<br /> - 4 High Side Digital outputs are used to drive external 24V relays to control my underfloor heating.<br /> <br /> Everything is bound together via UDP and has never missed a button press or relay switch so I'm very satisfied. <br /> Thinking of buying more modules for the extension of my renovation project!
Got two of them in combination with Loxone. <br /> One is in use for internal house domotica operations and other one for garden irrigation control and controlling the solenoid valves etc., works perfect!
