Denkovi Relay Command Line Tool
Supported OS: Windows Linux Raspbian
Although this is utility for USB relays, we added and the Wi-Fi relay boards to it in order to provide flexibility and compatibility with currently already developed systems based on our USB 16 Relay Modules.
Here the logic is similar to the USB relay boards control. Instead of ID or serial number, we have IP address:Port. Instead of relay board model, we have wifi16-tcp or wifi16-udp which set the communication method. Everything else is the same.
LIST COMMAND - obviously this command will display only the USB relay boards and not the Wi-Fi boards as they are network devices.
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar list
STATUS COMMAND - display relay(s) status(es).
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar 10.10.100.254:8899 wifi16-tcp 2 status
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar 10.10.100.254:8899 wifi16-tcp all status
SET COMMAND - set relay(s) state(s).
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar 10.10.100.254:8899 wifi16-tcp 2 1
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar 10.10.100.254:8899 wifi16-tcp all 0
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar 10.10.100.254:8899 wifi16-tcp turn 1110
TIMER COMMAND - execute time-critical operations. Well known fact is that every time when we run the command line tool the jvm is being run and this takes significant time. Many users contacted us with requests to execute timer commands for time-critical operations. That's why we added such command. It can perform single pulse, many pulses and even cycles with more complex sequences of pulses and every pulse can be with different time (in milliseconds). Please note the state bits must be equal to the relay number!
java -jar DenkoviRelayCommandLineTool.jar 10.10.100.254:8899 wifi16-tcp timer 1,1111,10,0000,50,1111,25 //makes all relays ON for 10ms, all OFF for 50ms and all ON for 25ms
Supported OS: Windows Linux Raspbian
The device is supported by DRM Software - a tool for controlling all our relay boards. In order to access the module select device type WiFi 16 Relay Brd. IP/URL is the IP or URL of the board. Port is the TCP/IP or UDP port of the board (depending on the communication method used). Protocol may be tcp or udp.
Configuration via Web Browser
The built-in web server provides ability for basic configuration of the module, like network settings, TCP/IP and UDP sockets parameters, wireless settings, passwords. Please note the relays can not be controlled via the web server!
Control via Virtual Serial (COM) Port technology
Nowadays there are lot of software applications still using/preferring serial port communications. One key feature of the module is that it supports Virtual Serial (COM) Port controlling of the relays. For example in Windows, controlling of the module is done via Virtual COM Port, shown in device manager, like in the screenshot bellow.
