Q580 - High Speed Real-Time Loop Controller

The Q580 is a master controller for massively distributed control systems with real-time and high-reliability requirements. It replaces tens of thousands of dollars worth of PLC and test/measure equipment.

Attach M10s and M40s to extend the I/O capability to thousands of analog and digital inputs and outputs. Attach I3200s and IC101s to add massive quantities of low-level current measurements in large-scale sensor arrays.
