Peakboard Edge

Peakboard Edge serves as an interface between inputs and outputs and a Peakboard Box.

One (or more) Peakboard Edge are located in the network and communicate with one (or more) Peakboard Enterprise Boxes. The box can receive information from or send information to the Peakboard Edge. The Peakboard Edge in turn provides various connection options.

Connection Number Info
RJ45 (Ethernet) 1 To integrate the PB Edge into a network
USB 2 To connect an input/output device or a WLAN dongle
Micro USB 1 Power supply
Terminal Strip (IN) 4 current outputs a 3.3 V, 4 inputs Are divided into pairs. Edge detects the state of the inputs
Terminal Strip (OUT) 4 switchable current pins (up to 24V), 1 current input 4 switchable pins can be controlled via the Edge so that the current from the current input is applied to them

The following devices, for example, can be connected to these connection options:

inputs

Input Device Connection
Push Button Terminal Block
(Binary) Sensor Terminal Block
Keyboard USB
Barcode Scanner USB
RFID Reader USB

Outputs

Output device Connection
Traffic Light Terminal Block
Signal Light Terminal Block
Speakers USB

By means of a visualization on a Peakboard Enterprise Box, the information from the input devices on a Peakboard Edge can be displayed on a screen or stored in a database. At the same time the information can be processed. The output devices on a Peakboard Edge can also be controlled via the visualization.

The following steps provide an overview of how Peakboard Edge can be used. It is possible to use Peakboard Edge in combination with Peakboard 1 and Peakboard 2.
