PoKeys56E

PoKeys56E

Product Code: PoKeys56e
Availability: Not available

PoKeys56E is replaced with improved and compatible (SW and HW) PoKeys 57E!

PoKeys56E is an easy-to-use Ethernet device that combines a lot of inputs and outputs, and does not require complex programming knowledge. Pokeys56 provides 55 digital I/O (5V tolerant), 7 analog inputs (12-bit). All the I/O are controlled by the provided software which allows either to use the graphical user interface or advanced console type interface. The settings can be stored on the device, so no special software is needed on target system. PoKeys56 can be used as industrial or CNC control or data acquisition board. PoKeys is available with (PoKeys56ET) or without (PoKeys56EN) screw terminals.

Features:

  • Ethernet 10/100 with DHCP client or fixed IP support
  • TCP connection with device
  • 55 digital inputs with pull-up resistors
  • 55 software controlled digital outputs
  • 7 analog inputs (12-bit) with adjustable low-pass filtering support
  • Up to 26 encoder pair inputs (3 high-speed encoder inputs, 1 ultra high speed encoder input)
  • 3-axis 25 kHz or 8-axis 125 kHz Pulse engine
  • Digital counters on specific digital input pins
  • Up to 16x8 matrix keyboard
  • Two 8x8 matrix LED display support
  • Up to 6 high-speed fully configurable PWM outputs support (25 MHz PWM timer)
  • HD44780-based character LCD support (up to 4x20 characters)
  • PoExtBus support for adding up to 10 external shift registers = 80 aditional outputs
  • PoNET devices support (48-key CNC keyboard, etc...)
  • Modbus TCP support (access to digital IO, analog inputs, encoders’ counters, digital counters values, PWM outputs, LCD display, LED matrix display, PoExtBus devices, matrix keyboard status)
  • Support for up to 10 sensors on I2C bus, up to 10 sensors on 1-wire bus and up to 7 analog sensors
  • Web interface with newly designed dashboard and I/O status display with multiple user accounts
  • Support for communication with devices on I2C and 1-wire buses
  • Support for Connection signal output
  • Intuitive and user-friendly software
  • Third-party support via communication DLL library and extensive protocol specification document that allows porting to other systems
  • Plugin for Mach3 and Mach4 software, PoKeys as 4-axis external motion controller or general purpose, highly cusomizable Human Machine Interface
  • PoBlocks graphical programming PLC software

 

Xively web services support (version 3.0.57 and on)

PoKeys56E automatically uploades the selected sensor values to the Xively web services, making them accessible from all over the world - look at our test feed of the room temperature and humidity sensor SHT21, connected to PoKeys56E: https://xively.com/feeds/117145067. For more details on using Xively web services with PoKeys56E devices, please look at this tutorial: http://www.mypokeys.com/?p=340.
