The newest model in Sensoray's 2600 series, the 2652, uses a single category-5 patch cable, connected to a 2601 communication module, to monitor and control up to eight solid state relays. Each of the relay sockets can have either an ac in, ac out, dc in, or dc out relay. The module uses a software debounce filter on each input relay to cut down on electromechanical switch bounce errors. The client can control the relay while configured as an output, or the relay can run as a PWM output with a rate and duty cycle specified by the client. There are five independent interlock circuits for letting external circuitry such as an emergency stop switch to de-energize an output relay.
