The USBoard is delivered with the default settings to be found at Parameter Set and is ready for instant use. An individual configuration can be done by Neobotix, if required, or by the customer. The included graphical parameter editor allows programming the board via an RS-232 port. After uploading the parameter set to the board, the USBoard immediately uses the new settings and optionally stores them in the non-volatile on-board EEPROM.
The USBoard can be used in four different ways:
- Monitoring the warning and alarm distances with the LEDs on the board.
- The relay outputs are connected to appropriate indicators and used for monitoring the fields.
- The measured distances are acquired via the CAN or RS-232 interface and interpreted by an external computer.
- A combination of the possibilities described above.
