indicators designed to appeal to
discerning PC and MAC users alike.
For additional connection reliability,
both the USB and nine-pin D-sub
serial connectors are gold plated.
Based on the very latest FTDI “R”
series chip set technology, the ES-U-
1001-R offers outstanding performance and quality at a remarkable
price. The ES-U-1001-R is supplied in

control has always
been a cost sensitive issue that often
The new itrol-
MC2 specific purpose controller
and monitor can
eliminate this dilemma. It can bring a
closed loop control function to any motor driven machinery, while providing
a remote control function using an Ethernet network or Internet connection.
The itrol-MC2 controls the power
to the system drive motor (pump, etc.),
measures the current demand, and one
physical parameter of the system such
as pressure, flow, temperature, level, or
strain. This creates a closed loop around
the system and enables prediction
of failure modes before performance is
affected. The Ethernet feature extends
the closed loop around the system
to include an operator, who can make
decisions on a real time basis. This
feature can extend control to anywhere
on the globe using the Internet, email,
or even web-enabled or text messaging
Typical applications include water
pump systems like municipal swimming
pools, wells, and circulation installations
for livestock feeders, aquariums, irrigation, or sump pump systems, remote lift
stations, remote cooling fans, refrigeration systems, even conveyor systems.
The itrol-MC2 features include:
• No programming required — simple
set-up process using a browser on
Windows or Mac.
• Remotely control a motor or other
loads over an Ethernet network or the
• Closed loop verification of motor
operation and condition with built-in
0-60.0 amp AC ammeter and 0-1, 5, 10
VDC analog sensor input.
• External contact or 0-5 VDC digital
input for local control of motor with
selectable contact form and operation.
• Multiple 24 hour timers for time
cycled motor control.
• Ammeter and analog sensors have
min/max displays for pinpointing
• User ID and password access
• Email capability triggered from user
selected limits of sensor operation and
• All operational data is stored in log
files and can be imported into various
data base programs.
• Three models with varying I/O, starting at $290.00.
