If you want to incorporate infrared I/O capabilities into your existing systems and processes please get in touch as we would welcome the opportunity to discuss possibilities with you. It is often much more cost effective and practical to make use of established and proven technology rather than developing an application from scratch. We can offer support and advice to your internal teams, manufacture purpose-built IR applications based on RedRat products, or develop bespoke hardware on your behalf, depending on your requirements.
The RedRat3-II is a USB-based remote control input/output device that gives IR remote control capabilities to a PC. It includes Windows drivers and a software development kit (SDK) so that our hardware can be integrated into your own applications via a .NET API. We also provide a number of applications so you can quickly set up and manage your own automated testing and monitoring programmes.
The irNetBox-III is a networked unit that allows you to control multiple AV devices via external IR emitter leads. It uses a simple and open TCP/IP based communication protocol so can be used by applications on most platforms. The irNetBox-III is now discontinued, to see the new and more powerful version of this product please click here.
This video shows the difference in output speed between the older irNetBox-II (bottom) and the irNetBox-III (top). Each flash of the front indicator LEDs corresponds to the output of a different IR signal, the irNetBox-III being able to reach a throughput of greater than 80 IR signals (depending on IR signal type).
