IRTrans Ethernet

                        IRTrans Ethernet                                                            IRTrans Ethernet PoE

•  Case: Same size as the "normal" IRTrans units. Only 72x50x19 mm (PoE Devices 72x50x25mm).
•  ATMega32. 32K Atmel Microcontroller to control the IR functions of the device
•  Freescale MC9S12NE64. 64K Freescale LAN Microcontroller handling the TCP/IP stack
•  Infrared <–> IP Gateway: All Ethernet based IRTrans Modules can be used as an IR <–> IP Gateway. This allows to transfer IR Commands via all kinds of IP based networks. Of course that can be done without any additional systems or software.
•  LAN Interface: 10 BaseT Ethernetinterface. 100MBit would be technically possible but will bring no speed advantage as the data packets for the IR commands are very small.
•  IR Database: Optionally the LAN Module is available with integrated 64K IR Database for about 800-1200 commands. The database is filled with a selection of IR Commands using the PC software. These commands can then be sent using simple TCP or UDP commands.
•  New: Real Time Clock + Timer: Modules with IR Database include a NTP based real-time clock. With this clock 4 timers can be used to send IR codes at a user defined schedule. It is even possible to send IR Codes repeatedly at specific times. IR codes can e.g. be sent every morning or evening at a specific time. To use this function a NTP server must be reachable in the local network or internet.
•  Wake On LAN: With the Wake On LAN function a PC connected to the network can be woken up using a selectable IR Code. Of course that will only work with a PC and OS that supports Wake On LAN.
•  Firmware. All modules have got an integrated bootloader. This Bootloader allows later upgrades of the firmware of the modules using a small programm. When there are upgrades or bug fixes the firmware can be upgraded by the customer within a few minutes. Of course the LAN and the IR Firmware are user upgradeable
•  IP Functions The TCP/IP stack supports all important services.
- DHCP to assign IP Addresse
- Integrated Webserver for configuration purposes
- New: Send IR Codes via HTTP Call (only with IRDB)
- Sending and Receiving of IR commands via TCP or UDP
- New: Send IR Codes via UDP ASCII String (only with IRDB)
•  Software. The IRTrans Ethernet is supported by the IRTrans Windows / LINUX Software and by the iRed Software on the Mac.
•  Assembly. The IRTrans are entirely build using modern SMD technology. This assures reliable operation and a very small footprint.
•  Certification. All IRTrans Modules are certified according to CE and FCC regulations and can be used worldwide.
