  • Nimbus Smart Relay and IIoT Cloud Interface

    Nimbus Smart Relay

    CUSTOMIZABLE PRODUCT: This product is available in custom configurations for OEMs and high volume orders (over 100 pieces). If you have a difficult application that requires our engineering input, please call 1-888-652-4757 so we can assist you.

    What it does: Uses relays to control mains powered equipment, can connect to the IoT Cloud.

    Control small machines and send data to the Cloud

    The Nimbus is an all-in-one solution for controlling small machines. The conveniently compact unit measures only 3.98” x 0.91” x 4.72” and provides 3 programmable relay outputs capable of switching mains powered equipment. It features industrial grade analog and digital I/O, with 4–20mA and NTC temperature inputs.

    Collect operating data from your machine

    Additionally, the Nimbus has a built-in Cloud interface so you can send data from your machine to the Cloud – useful for scheduling maintenance, replenishing consumables and other “upkeep” tasks.
