The monitoring of light sources such as, for example operating indicator lamps, can be realized with the optical input.
The IOB 4000 can be integrated in the test house software. The instruction set is provided and own applications can be written. The communication is performed via an optical RS232 interface which enables faultless access to the IOB 4000 in an immunity test setup.
All functions of the IOB 4000 can be tested with the included software “IO-Test“. The communications port can be selected, the BOX can be woken up, the number of measurements per second can be set, the serial number can be read and the battery status can be seen. All hardware inputs and outputs of the IOB 4000 are also in the window.
The box consists of a robust metal case optimized for EMC. This is due to the intended use as interface box for monitoring signals for EMC measurements. The power supply is made using batteries in order to guarantee operation independent of mains power.
