NTouch Genie (NTG4) by Ness / ELK Corporation is Infrared Gateway Interface which transforms any system integrated with this unit into universal IR remote control with virtually limited possibilities. Any device controllable by IR, RS232 or IPcan be connected. Voltage sensing, routable IR, bidirectional RS232 l, analog inputs and digital inputs/outputs allow for a wide array of automation and control possibilities. When integrated with iMCA System, you can not only remotely control almost any of your IR based remote control devices, control 2 Normal Open/Close relays and attached devices, read 1 temperature sensors or 2 analogue/digital inputs from virtually anywhere, but also create virtual connections with any other sensors registered in the iMCA System such as temperature, humidity, vibration, flood, air flow, PIR detectors, GAS detectors, etc. You can easily create and execute any number of automation scenarios based on time schedule or sensor information, without having to deal with any cryptic codes or learning a scripting language. Ideal for projects of any size where Infrared Remote control is required, and 2 switching relays, 1 analogue/temperature inputs are sufficient. When used with the iMCA System and its state sensors (including this unit itself) it is useful for quick visual monitoring of states of various objects like doors/windows open/closed etc
Specification and Features
IR library built in with 348,000 codes to make installation quick and easy
Two configurable GPIO ports (general purpose input/output).
Digital Input capability (does not take up IR port or require additional hardware).
Sense Voltage (video sensing) or evaluate equipment state (on/off).
Digital Output for control of turning equipment on or off.
Analog input to connect directly to line level audio or composite video to trigger events or
Configurable input parameters allowing tailored sensing parameters to the device generating
An internal GPIO port can be configured to act as a counter or frequency input to measure
Four IR ports and an IR blaster – Route IR to any port for specific equipment control or blast it to a rack
