The Dataprobe iPIO-8 (SKU 1340070) is a network attached, IP addressed digital input and output device. The iPIO-8 can be controlled and monitored with a standard web browser. Multiple ipIO-8 devices can communicate amongst themselves to transport I/O information across the network. Highly flexible telemetry systems can be developed with these simple devices.

Simple Web Browser Control and Monitoring

The Status and Control web page provides real time status of the inputs, outputs and remote iPIO unit connections. The top of the page indicates the location reference, which is user settable.

Each input, output and remote device is defined by a user selectable name. Inputs and outputs can also be assigned names for Open and Closed statuses, as well as background and text colors for each. All configurations are accomplished via the setup tab at the top of the screen.

If the iPIO-8 is programmed to communicate with additional units, each remote unit will be displayed at the bottom of the page. Each remote site displays red or green, indicating connection status.

Dataprobe iPIO-8 Applications

iPIO-8 is simple to install and easy to use, but enables you to develop highly flexible telemetry systems.

Dataprobe iPIO-8 Bi-Directional GPIO Transport over IP

iPIO - Transport I/O Events Over IP
Bidirectional GPIO Event Transport

iPIO-8 gives you the ability to transport digital I/O across Ethernet networks with IP protocols. Multiple iPIO devices can communicate amongst themselves to transport I/O information across your network, and links are bidirectional, so events in either location are reflected at any other site. Any changes in status appear at the other end of the network as relay outputs. 2 Units are required for End-to-End transport. Contact us for a discount on paired units.

Dataprobe iPIO-8 Multi-Site Event Distribution

iPIO - Multi Site Event Reporting

One digital input can trigger relay controls at multiple remote locations. With iPIO, one alarm can trigger events throughout your network, making it easy to respond to physical events and manage your systems remotely:

  • Climate Control
  • Industrial Control
  • Security Alerts
  • Firehouse Doors
  • Irrigation Systems
Dataprobe iPIO-8 Multi-Site Event Consolidation

iPIO - Consolidate Events Across Sites

Events from multiple locations can also be consolidated to a central alarm point. Digital inputs from any iPIO unit can be mapped to the relay output of any other, giving you maximum control:

  • Environmental Alarm Summaries
  • Storm Warning Systems
  • Security Alerts
  • Pump Controls

Question: I have been trying to find this answer for a few days, sorry i need help. Basically i want to use this to turn on a light. I want to use one of the inputs as a physical switch on. Is it possible to maybe have a momentary on button to change the state of the relay? Relay 1 is off, push button sends momentary on to input 1, in turn changes state of relay 1.
Answer: Thank you for your patience. Here is the response we received from our Dataprobe contact:
The latest revision of the ipio8 code (1.21.105) does support momentary as well as a pulse. The setup for it is in the remote setup section of the current manual on page 9. (We have uploaded the manual for your convenience)

Each local input on the iPIO-8 can be used to activate one relay on remote iPIO-8 units. Program the Remote Relay section by selecting which remote relay will be controlled by each input. Select the relay number on the remote unit that will be controlled. The On Open and On Close setting allow the user to define the action that the remote relay will take when the input is open or closed. The choices are Open, Close or Pulse - Open and Pulse - Close. If Pulse - Open or Close is selected, the relay will momentarily take the state chosen (open or closed) for the duration specified in the Pulse column.

So, you could program input 1 for "on close" to close relay 1. Then when with a momentary close on the input, the relay will close. Program input 1 "on open" to none so that when the input opens, relay one will stay closed. You will need another method to open the relay back up, as there is no toggle option. You could program input 2 "on close" to open relay 1 as a clear, or use the webpage to clear the relay, or even the DxP protocol and create a shortcut on a desktop to clear the relay. You could even use the input 1 "on close" pulse close with a delay, so the relay will clear itself after that delay.

As for the light, we are closing a relay, and an LED on the unit will indicate the closure, but you will have to make the relay control a light. LED or low current kind of thing.

There will be new code available for the iBoot-G2+ in a month or so that will allow a contact closure to toggle an AC outlet.

Question: Hello, i need an external power supply to use IPIO 8?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

Dataprobe p/n PS-WRI-6 would be the external replacement power supply for the Dataprobe iPIO-8.
