Messages between the two modules is sent periodically at a user defined rate. If a change in the input conditions is detected or a new serial data stream is arrives then this period is over-ridden and a new message is sent immediately. In this way network traffic is kept to a minimum while response time is maximised.
One of the outputs can be programmed to show the current status of the link.
Netiom-Link will work over both local and wide area networks such as the internet.
Special interface software is included which can be use to configure Netiom and download web pages via a PCs serial port. Network settings can be manually set or automatically obtained from a DHCP server (usually an ADSL router).
