Central for Safe, Secure Equipment Control

The Endpoint Controller supports simple integration into a wide variety of simple, semi-autonomous, and very intelligent systems. Support for optimized proprietary digital protocols as well as industry standards such as CANOpen, industrial ethernet, and others allows for quick integration into electrified systems. Flexible solid-state inputs and outputs support commonly used industrial control systems and safety field devices, and complementary modes as well as ruggedized voltage inputs allow for integration into simpler systems.
