Products - Infrared Learning and Storage System


The IES Infrared Learning Module is capable of learning and storing IR codes and macros. The device also has the capability to be connected to a network via RS232 and transmit feedback to the network as a response to an RS232 command. The unit can also learn and store IR codes independently of a PC using switches to control the learn and transmit program.

The unit has the following capabilities that can be tailored to for the specific device required.

General Hardware Specification

  1. Capture capability for most standard IR codes with carrier frequency
  2. Can support up to 8 ir ports
  3. Can store over 600 codes (depending on size of flash)
  4. Can support carrier on/off and data invert
  5. Can learn locally (without PC) via push button switches
  6. Can support up to 72 external switches (for learn and IR transmit independent of PC)
  7. Can support up to 4 external LEDs for status
  8. LED for power indicator
  9. LED to show activity on IR transmit LED
  10. Can support external operation via IR remote control (on board IR receiver to accept standard IR remote control signals)
  11. Can be downloaded via RS232
  12. Has option of linear 5 V regulator or Switching power supply for higher voltage input (up to 24 VDC)
  13. Size: approximately 3 inches by 3.2 inches
  14. Power : approximately 50 to 60 ma

Software Specification

Programming Mode

The IES GUI software allows the user to quickly and easily learn store and configure IR codes. The Software also allows for the user to easily construct macros incorporating the previously learned codes along with programmable delays. For some configurations the Software also allows for the entry of the feedback messages to be sent over the network. The Software is currently set up to configure as many as 8 sources of 23 buttons each with 8 macros along with a 12 character feedback for every button. The GUI SW can be tailored for a different amount of sources and buttons as per your requirements.

Simulator Mode

The Simulator mode allows the user to simulate commands from the PC as if they were coming from the network interface, thus allowing the user to test the commands from the PC.
