IDRATEK have provided us with some photos of their (now in production) multifunction user interface module – the £228 DFP-H02. This device is the replacement for the MFP range and provides the same comprehensive range of sensors including light level, temperature, humidity, PIR, general purpose digital inputs, an IR transceiver and audio I/O, but there the similarities end.
Four relay drive output lines are now provided by means of two connectors at the rear. A separate dual channel relay plug in accessory is available (XRM-001).
Like all IDRATEK modules the DFP-H02 functionality, including what is displayed, is user configurable. However default behaviours and menus are provided by Cortex. Also like other modules internal firmware can be updated in-situ meaning that new enhancements can be easily passed on to existing customer installations.
With its range of sensors and its comprehensive user interface the DFP-H02 is an ideal primary module for placement in the main rooms of a property.
Due to the delays that beset this project and the need to satisfy a backlog of orders before opening up supplies more widely, publicity has been muted so far. Our main web pages will not be updated with details of the DFP-H02 for a few days yet. However readers interested in additional detail can refer to the advance data sheet. Anyone interested in purchasing these modules in the near future is advised to contact IDRATEK with their estimated requirements since demand at this stage is already high and production schedules are tight.”
