RS232 Power Control Plastic Case
Sometimes you need to switch on/off an AC load with a simple RS232 command. The market is full of WiFi based power control, but what if this is overkill? What if WiFi is not available, but a local microcontroller is? When our customer requested this part we found the easiest solution was to modify an existing remote relay controlled outlet to accept commands from a real RS232 connector.
