For the vision to become reality, control and automation professionals must evolve from traditional, high-end proprietary systems meant for only the few at the top of the financial food chain, to embrace a simpler, more agile architecture that supports choice, growth, and affordability for anyone interested in enjoying the value and many benefits of control and automation.

The Global Caché family of connectivity products provides choices for the industry professional and the consumer – significantly reducing costs and providing a scalable platform for today and the future. Our belief in open systems and the evolution of the control and automation market is being played out today since cost-effective PC based and phone based control applications are now becoming widely available.

We’re proud of our reputation for reliability and partnership. We value our customers and industry relationships and work hard to maintain the highest level of service to our customers and partners. We welcome your inquiries and comments and look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Products

GC-IRE IR Emitter - Single Infra Red emitter port cable.

IR Blaster Cable for iTach Systems. The GC-BL2 is designed for use with the Global Caché GC-100 Network Adapters to transmit IR signals across a room up to 40 feet. No power supply or connecting block is required for use. With an IR modulation frequency range of 30 - 500 kHz, and transmitting up 40 feet, the GC-BL2 is the obvious solution to any IR signal strength problem.

General IR Receiver Cable for iTach Systems. The GC-RG1 is an IR receiver able to capture IR frequencies from 30KHz to 72KHz. The GC-RG1 is intended for use with the GC-IRE to capture and digitize IR signals.

IR Learner: IR Learner Cable for PC [use with iLearn Software]. The Global Caché GC-IRL IR Learner plugs into the RS232 port of any PC and is used to learn the full spectrum, 30KHz to 500KHz, of IR codes that control infrared driven audio/video equipment.

GC-SV1 Video Sensor Cable for detection of video signals for iTach Systems

The GC-SP1 monitors the on-and-off status of electronic components by detecting an AC or DC voltage greater than ± 2V. Voltages up to ± 24V can be connected to the GC-SP1 to determine the powered state of equipment, power strips (via a wall adaptor), or a ring condition on a telephone circuit. The GC-SP1 is optically isolated and clamped by a transient voltage suppressor to ensure circuit isolation and protection. The device can be plugged directly into the Global Caché GC-100 Network Adaptor, which connects the sensor to the network. Additionally, the GC-SP1 will work with other controllers that provide 5V power and accept digital logic (TTL) input. The GC-SP1 connector is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack.This sensor can be used with iTach IR connectors in Sensor mode, but due to a design alteration must be connected to the unit with an audio crossover cable. The wires that need to be swapped are the tip and the ring.

The GC-SC1 detects the open-and-closed status of a pair of isolated contacts, such as a relay or switch. It is ideally suited for detecting contact closure on drapery controllers, thermostats, security contacts, and door strikes. The GC-SC1 filters out false triggers associated with typical contact bounce.
