AREMBEUSB Remote Control Software

AREMBEUSB Remote Control Web server

The AREMBEUSB Remote Control system allows remote control of up to four Velleman K8055/K8055N/VM110/VM110N USB Experiment Interface Boards from any internet-enabled device that has a web browser, allowing boards to be operated over any distance, ranging from within the same room up to thousands of miles.

The system consists of a server program that is installed on the PC to which the boards are connected via their USB interfaces, and a control page hosted on this website. When the server is running but offline, simple controls allow the board(s) outputs to be set, and the inputs to be displayed, directly from the server program. When the server is placed online, it communicates with the website and registers the fact that it is running. Any user who then accesses the control page via a browser, be it on a PC, Smartphone, iPad, netbook, or any other device, can operate the board(s) using the page. In addition, if an error occurs (such as the board becoming disconnected, or the server going off-line), then the web page will report this information.

No Special Apps Required

A great advantage over other remote control systems is that there is no need to install any special app or program on the controlling device or computer, since the control page is always available via this website. All that is needed is an active internet connection and a web browser.

When a system is being controlled from a web page, if another attempt is made to connect to the same system from another device or browser, then the second web page can operate in a "monitoring" mode, allowing the status of the system's boards(s) inputs and outputs to be displayed but not allowing them to be controlled.

PC Requirements for Server

The server program has been verified as operating correctly on computers running Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista 32 bit, and Windows 7 (both 32 and 64 bit versions). Of course, the PC also requires an active internet connection, and free USB ports to which the K8055/K8055N/VM110/VM110N boards can be connected.

Device Requirements for Web Page Control

The only requirement for operating the web page is a device with an active internet connection (fixed or wireless) and a browser with support for JavaScript enabled. Cookies do not need to be enabled but if they are then it will save having to re-enter the Server ID each time the page is accessed.
