  • Wi-Fi Relay System (WRLS)
    Wireless relay plus Windows software
    Wireless Remote Control
    for 802.11 wireless networks


    The Wi-Fi Relay System (WRLS) provides wireless control for a remotely located device or equipment. The product is a plug-and-play solution that consists of WR-1000 controller (shown above) and Windows software. The WRLS supports the following relay operations:

    • Off
    • On
    • Timed
    • Scheduled

    Timed operation allows you to activate the relay for up to 27 hours before automatically deactivating.  Scheduling permits you to define one or more events for later execution. Each event may be defined as one-time or periodic and can occur daily, weekly, monthly, etc. You can even specify individual day(s) of the week and/or weekends. The scheduling feature supports up to 10 individual events. (Events are created at the host and uploaded to the WR-1000 controller where they are stored in non-volatile memory. Subsequent host interaction is not required.)

    The WRLS controller is sleek and compact, measuring only 5.5" x 4.75" x 1". This Wi-Fi solution is simple to install and requires no communications wiring. It is ideal for use in a number of applications:

    • Automation
    • Remote control
    • Equipment activation
    • Scheduled alerts
    • Access control
    • OEM applications
    • Robotics
    You may create your own custom host application or we can provide our WRLS application (for Windows). The WRLS permits you to configure the WR-1000 controller, operate the relay, and create event schedules.

    The WRLS is comprised of two primary elements:

    • WR-1000 controller
    • WRLS host software

    Compatible with standard Wi-Fi networks, the WR-1000 controller is a self-contained device with wireless TCP/IP interface and AC adapter.

    WRLS Client software is
    compatible with WR-1000 controllers. This software provides functions for controller configuration, initialization, scheduling, and more!  There are 3 available editions: lite, standard, & premium.  The table below summarizes the features for each edition:

    WRLS Software Features

    The WR-1000 controller is easily configured for your network using any suitable USB-to-RS232 adapter (not included). Or, if desired, we can pre-configure the unit for you. The following network parameters are applicable:

    • SSID
    • Passphrase
    • Gateway (router) address
    • Static I.P. address
    • Port number

    The following network authentication modes are supported:
