Industrologic, Inc., announces the release of their UWDT Universal Standalone Watchdog Timer.
The Industrologic UWDT is a watchdog timer circuit board that can be used to increase the reliability of nearly any microcontroller or single board computer system by monitoring a signal, and activating a reset circuit or cycling the system power if the signal is no longer present.
It can be triggered with logic level or open collector digital outputs from a microcontroller or single board computer, or with RS-232 serial data from any communication protocol.
If the UWDT has determined that a system restart is required, its form "C" relay with 10 amp contacts can restart a microcontroller or system by either power cycling the system's power, or by operating a reset switch connection if available.
The UWDT is shipped complete with all items necessary to begin using it to monitor a microcontroller or computer system, including a serial port cable for connection to a PC compatible computer, a wall block power supply, and a hardware reference manual.
