The REL2002 is a mechanical relay. The Signal Relay is a double-pole double-throw style relay meaning it will switch two circuits at once. This Phidget connects to your computer through a VINT Hub.

Features:

  • Capable of switching two circuits at once
  • Rated for 60W of DC power or 125 VA of AC power
  • DC applications - switch a circuit of up to 120V or 2A, to a maximum switching power of 60W (For example, 30V/2A or 120V/0.5A).
  • AC applications - switch up to 2A or 240V AC, to a maximum of 125 VA of power (For example, 62V/2A or 240V/0.5A).

Technical Details:

  • Isolation - A voltage spike on the load side of the relay will not damage the control side

HUB0000 - Linux

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

Step 2: Connect Devices

Step 3: Verify Connection

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

1. First, you need to install the libusb-1.0 development libraries. For example, in Debian based distributions:

apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev


You’ll also need a C compiler and builder, if you don’t already have one installed.

apt-get install gcc
apt-get install make

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

2. Next, download and unpack the Phidgets library:

libphidget22

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

3. Use the following commands in the location you unpacked to install the library:

./configure
make
sudo make install

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

4. (Optional) You can also download and unpack the following optional packages:

phidget22networkserver - Phidget Network Server, which enables the use of Phidgets over your network

phidget22admin - Admin tool to track who is connected to your Phidgets when using the network server

libphidget22extra - Required for phidget22networkserver and phidget22admin

libphidget22java - The Java libraries for Phidget22


For installation instructions for these packages, see the README file included with each one.

Step 2: Connect Devices

● Connect USB Cable to your Linux Computer

● Connect VINT Device(s)

Step 3: Verify Connection

1. The easiest way to verify that your libraries are working properly is to compile and run an example program. Download and unpack this C example that will detect any Phidget:

HelloWorld C Example

Step 3: Verify Connection

2. Next, open the terminal in the location where you unpacked the example. Compile and run using:

gcc HelloWorld.c -o HelloWorld -lphidget22
sudo ./HelloWorld

ou should receive a “Hello” line for each Phidget channel that is discovered:

I don’t see any Phidgets show up in the HelloWorld example

You need to run it with sudo in order to be able to access USB devices. In order to use Phidgets without sudo, you need to set your udev rules. See the Advanced Information page on the final slide of this guide for details.

Done!

If you're able to see your devices in the Hello World example, you're done with the Setup part of this guide.

SBC3003 - Linux

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

Step 2: Connect Devices

Step 3: Verify Connection

Step 4: Connect Wireless

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

1. First, you need to install the libusb-1.0 development libraries. For example, in Debian based distributions:

apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev


You’ll also need a C compiler and builder, if you don’t already have one installed.

apt-get install gcc
apt-get install make

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

2. Next, download and unpack the Phidgets library:

libphidget22

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

3. Use the following commands in the location you unpacked to install the library:

./configure
make
sudo make install

Step 1: Install Phidgets Library

4. (Optional) You can also download and unpack the following optional packages:

phidget22networkserver - Phidget Network Server, which enables the use of Phidgets over your network

phidget22admin - Admin tool to track who is connected to your Phidgets when using the network server

libphidget22extra - Required for phidget22networkserver and phidget22admin

libphidget22java - The Java libraries for Phidget22


For installation instructions for these packages, see the README file included with each one.

Step 2: Connect Devices

● Connect Power Jack

● Connect VINT Device(s)

● Connect Ethernet to a Router or Switch in the same network as your Linux machine

Step 3: Verify Connection

1. The easiest way to verify that your libraries are working properly is to compile and run an example program. Download and unpack this C example that will detect any Phidget:

HelloWorld C Example

Step 3: Verify Connection

2. Next, open the terminal in the location where you unpacked the example. Compile and run using:

gcc HelloWorld.c -o HelloWorld -lphidget22
sudo ./HelloWorld

If everything is working, you should receive a “Hello” line for each Phidget channel that is discovered:

I don’t see any Phidgets show up in the HelloWorld example

You need to run it with sudo in order to be able to access USB devices. In order to use Phidgets without sudo, you need to set your udev rules. See the Advanced Information page on the final slide of this guide for details.

Now that the SBC's ethernet connection is verified, it can be connected to wifi.

If you don't have a USB wifi adapter or you're planning to stay on ethernet, you can scroll down to

Part 2: Using Your Phidget

Step 4: Connect Wireless

1. In your web browser, enter phidgetsbc.local

If you're using a terminal-only Linux machine, use the browser on your phone instead.

(If you use a phone, you need to enter the IP address your router assigned to the SBC instead of phidgetsbc.local)

Step 4: Connect Wireless

2. Create a password for your SBC. You will use this to access the configuration page from now on.

Step 4: Connect Wireless

3. Navigate to Network -> Wireless. Select your Network, enter the wifi password and select Add This Network.

Step 4: Connect Wireless

4. Scroll down to your saved networks, click on your network and select Join This Network.

Step 4: Connect Wireless

5. It should now say connected in the status column.

You can now unplug the ethernet cable.

Step 4: Connect Wireless

6. Run the HelloWorld example again to confirm that your Phidgets are accessible over wifi.

Done!

If you're able to see your devices in the Hello World example, you're done with the Setup part of this guide.

About

1017 1 Relay Diagram.jpg

The REL2002 is a mechanical relay suitable for both AC and DC applications. It is a double-pole double-throw style relay meaning it will switch two circuits at once. You interact with the REL2002 through the Digital Output Channel Class to turn power to your circuit or device on and off .

Explore Your Phidget Channels Using The Control Panel

Double click on the Digital Output channel class under the port your REL2002 is connected to.

Part 3: Create your Program

1. Setting up your Programming Environment

2. Phidget Programming Basics

Part 4: Advanced Topics and Troubleshooting

How do I know what channel, serial number, or hub port to use in my program?

Before you open a Phidget channel in your program, you can set these properties to specify which channel to open. You can find this information through the Control Panel.

1. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the red map pin icon:

The locate Phidget button is found in the device information box

2. The Addressing Information window will open. Here you will find all the information you need to address your Phidget in your program.
