I/O expansion past one rack?


#1

How is I/O expanded past one rack using Epic I/O without adding another Epic controller? Specifically the Digital AC modules? (I like the higher density vs. SnapPAC modules)


#2

Two ways.

  1. Use a Snap rack, either with a EB or R.
  2. Wait for October to roll around. (I, personally, am super excited about this option).

#3

Daisy Chain racks without brains? I would be excited about that.


#4

Or how about building a stand alone Epic controller like the Snap S1 or S2?


#5

You are not the first to suggest this… Enough to say we will have something to say about this in a few months.


#6

Anything new on this front?


#7

What option? Did it ever materialize?


#8

It will materialize. It is a real product. Its in the final stages of design. No prototypes yet, but almost (I have seen 3D printed mock ups).
And yes, its taking longer than we anticipated.


#9

Is this the long awaited product? It doesn’t really address my original concern.

It does address PilotMan’s wish.


#10

No. A zero I/O product does not describe what you are looking for.
Clearly its taking longer than any of us thought. Just hang in there. (I think it will be worth the wait).

On the other hand, yes, it does fit @PilotMan wish rather well.
