Application for Web-IO Digital / Remote controlled timer:

Control timers identically from a central calendar

Control timers identically from a central calendar

The Web-IO Digital allows you to control multiple timers from a central calendar. Taking account of holidays for a school bell is a good example of this. The switching times can be entered like normal dates either on the local PC or in an online calendar.

Using an iCal file the switching times are sent to the Web-IO through the network connection.

Depending on what internet connections are available the Web-IOs can check the central calendar cyclically and accept the changes. If the iCal file is already loaded into the Web-IO, the integrated timers work even without a network connected.

Once the network connection is made, the individual outputs on the Web-IO can also be directly turned on or off from the browser at different times than scheduled in the calendar. The switching state selected in this way remains until the next time-controlled switching action (or until the user again accesses through the browser).


Currently sold Web-IO 4.0 Digital units no longer support this function!

There may however be other implementation options for your application using current technologies from Industry 4.0.

For customers with iCal there are still a few Web-IO models which support this function.
