Modularity concept

NEURON brings a unique conception of modularity to the world of programmable controllers

Automation technology finds its use everywhere. PLC units are becoming more affordable yet they do not provide sufficient modularity. Although everything is hidden in metallic boxes, NEURON architecture brings variety of modules connected together. This brings the modular solution what people needed.

NEURON modules offer useful combination of analogue and digital inputs and outputs and the end user can pick either from preselected I/O combinations for specific purposes or customize completely new combination. This way NEURON offers exactly those features which customers need.
