The UDIN-8E automatically sends make/break information to a host PC without the need to poll the unit. Supplied with the “Gator” annunciator and event logger software package.  Also supplied with Virtual Com port drivers so that it can be used with most legacy software packages or with a .DLL for direct programming.

The UDIN-8E is a low-cost digital input unit for desk-top, panel or industrial DIN rail mounting. It features 8 x fully opto-isolated digital inputs which results in a corresponding ASCII character to be sent. The inputs can accept a 5-24V DC voltage or a volt free contact. The UDIN-8E does not require any external PSU as power is derived from the USB port..

The UDIN-8E can be desktop, panel or DIN rail mount. The unit will clip on to standard 35mm DIN rail. The DIN rail mounting clips may be extended to reveal 4mm screw holes for fixing to a panel or wall.


Most software packages that can send or receive ASCII data to a RS232 port should be able to control the UDIN-8E. The UDIN-8E units comes with a Virtual Com Port driver, which installs a "Virtual" Com port on the PC. Software can then send and receive ASCII data to and from this Virtual Com port and thus to the UDIN-8E unit. Typical packages that can be used include Windows HyperTerminal (and most other terminal emulator packages), data acquisition packages such as DAQFactory, etc. and also most SCADA Software packages.

Programmers can bypass the VCP route, and use direct .DLL function calls instead. The UDIN units are supplied with a test application complete with all source code. Drivers are available for the Windows operating system, Linux, MAC and Win CE.NET
