Maximite - anyone considered one?
#5
Yeah, it comes in a little case, however the interface from the basic Maximite is just a 26w IDC connector.

That's where my add on boards come in, they plug straight in, and provide the interfacing circuitry for in or outs or whatever.

Given your a PLC guy and probably have access to the necessary hardware and programming software, it probably doesnt offer you much, but for the rest of us it's a good alternative.

The kit is available from Altronics for $89.00 (was $79.00) and they have sold over 1000 of them.

Given the hardware and software is open source, there are a couple of spin off versions underway as well. One by Olimex in collaboration with Dontronics will support the Arduino shields. Their version is pre built and half the price.
