IRT-6000-TPD Home Page, PDF Brochure

The IRT-6000-TPD is an alarm and relay controller for cards that have external alarms and controls that are not DashBoard enabled.


  • Eight alarm input ports.
  • Eight solid state relay control output ports.
  • DashBoard software monitoring and control.

IRT-6000-TPD Block Diagram

The IRT-6000-TPD is an 8 input / 8 output solid state relay module designed to work in conjunction with openGear® DashBoard® control software.

The IRT-6000-TPD finds particular use in gathering alarm and status information from non-network controlled devices that use either relay or transistor switch to ground or open circuit output ports.

As well as being used for gathering information from non-networked devices, the IRT-6000-TPD also has the ability to control non-networked devices that only need simple switching so that remote control is possible via openGear® DashBoard® control software.

8 independent inputs are opto-coupled being activated by either a switch to ground or switch to open circuit contact.

8 solid state relay outputs switch to either ground or open circuit to allow drive control to external equipment that require either of these two states to operate.

The IRT-6000-TPD is designed to fit the openGear® standard 2RU frames which allow a mixture of cards from various manufacturers to be mounted within the same frame.

The DashBoard™ control software is available as a free download.
