A wide range of I/O modules are available for use with the CSMSTR master Modular Controller. The master controller uses a high-speed serial protocol to communicate, with up to 16 slave I/O modules. Through the same backplane connection, the master Modular Controller also provides power to the modules making installing and powering these Modular Controllers easy.
The CSMSTR master Modular Controller automatically identifies and addresses all connected slave modules upon powering up. By storing the configuration information of all of the modules, the CSMSTR is able to automatically configure modules if they are replaced.
