Yes, that is a useful feature, especially if programmable.  I use a timed relay feature in my Davicom units when rebooting some piece of equipment or holding a solenoid valve open for a certain amount of time. They have a programmable feature for setting a time duration (Pulse width) for momentary contact closures/opennings from 100 ms to hours. I use such a feature automatically for the most part except for a reboot of a router or something. In that case I made a button on my screen control panel to activate the relay pulse width set to 10 seconds. Just click it and it does the rest.

To the Forum at large:

I've been e-mailing with Burk about some features that I believe would be VERY useful and helpful on their Plus Touch units... and was just told that NOBODY ELSE has asked for them! (I find that shocking!)

Here are the feature requests I'm asking them to implement, and was hoping that some of my colleagues here would be in agreement, and consider e-mailing "support" at burk.com to ask them about them. :)

1) A "click and hold" feature, where the remote relay will STAY CLOSED for the duration of the mouse button (or the touch screen) being held on the on-screen "button".

As it stands, the unit only offers two options: LATCHING, where a relay STAYS set to whichever mode was clicked, and "MOMENTARY" with a FIXED time that you program for that relay. (Default is 0.5 seconds)

You can click and hold the button as long as you want, but the relay will only activate for that preset duration. This should be changed.

2) A CHANNEL SELECTABLE "Are you sure?" confirmation dialog.

The way it is now, the "Are you sure?" option is ALL OR NOTHING. I find that absurd! There are only a FEW command buttons that I want to add the "Are you sure?" dialogs, NOT ALL OF THEM. :)

Do *YOU* find these ideas useful?

Thoughts? :)
