G'Day all,

I am looking at using an elexol IO24 CPU module which has ethernet and
24 I/O ports for control. Does anyone have any experience with this
module?

Does anyone know of any other ethernet based embeded modules with at
least 4-8 digital I/O?

I guess it depends on what you want to accomplish but I think an embedded PC
with ethernet, running DOS or Linux makes much more sense that a dedicated
ethernet I/O board.

picoFlash has 16 I/O pins and there's an add-on board for 32 digital inputs,
20 digital outputs, and 11 channels of 12 bit analog inputs.

Re: Elexol control modules



A dedicated PC per point is not economically viable for me, I need
about a dozen of these modules on an ethernet link for 1 location and a
few more for another. I intend on using a central node to do some
agregation of data and if I can afford it a touch screen display to
assist as a master control seperate from the PC, but I might just use
another PC for that part of the system.

I'll have a look at the one you suggested.

So far I have elexol and modtronics as prime contenders.

The picoFlash costs $99 although you will likely spend $129 to get the
development kit. The elexol board costs $124.
