FroodboX - the FileMaker Breakout box

Wouldn’t it be great if you could control hardware from your FileMaker solution, or the other way around, have hardware execute FileMaker scripts and actions?
We just made this possible! We’re proud to present our latest product, the Froodbox. Now you can control machines, switch lights on and off, lock or unlock doors, trigger anything that has a power plug from a FileMaker solution.


What can you do with this box?

Our standard FroodboX contains 4 relais, capable of switching 250VAC/10A - 30VDC/10A. The Froodbox has it’s own power supply and connects to your network with ethernet.
Once set up, you can use simple commands in FM to open and close relais. As an extra option you can add 4TTL inputs and 6 analogue inouts (10 bit 0-5V)
The FroodboX comes with a switching power supply (110-240V 50/60Hz)
