Neuron product line has three product types and each type has several standard models. Each model has different number of inputs and outputs and has a different processing unit.
This part introduces inputs, outputs and interfaces of the Neuron product line. All NEURON types have these features:
Standard NEURON models have variable amount of digital inputs and relay outputs as shown in the table below:
|Models||Number of Digital Inputs||Number of Relay outputs||Size on DIN rail 35 mm|
|S101, S102, S103||4||0||4 modules|
|M101, M102, M103||12||8||8 modules|
|M201, M202, M203||20||14||8 modules|
|M301, M302, M303||34||0||8 modules|
|M401, M402, M403||4||28||8 modules|
|L201, L202, L203||36||28||12 modules|
|L301, L302, L303||64||0||12 modules|
|L401, L402, L403||4||56||12 modules|
|Model S / M / L||Model of Raspberry Pi||CPU||RAM|
|xx1||Pi 1 Model B+||0.7 GHz||512 MB|
|xx2||Pi 2 model B||4× 0.9 GHz||1 GB|
|xx3||Pi 3 model B||4× 1.2 GHz||1 GB|
NEURON can have three models of Raspberry Pi with a different performance. Last number (1-3) of technical name signifies which of the three Pi models the unit has. E. g. model M303 has 1.2 GHz and 1 GB RAM.
All NEURON units features communication interfaces for 1-Wire bus and Modbus together with Ethernet 10/100 Mb.
1-Wire is a device communication bus system. It suitable for simple data transmission over long distances. In a single channel there can be connected up to 20 1-Wire devices such as temperature or humidity sensors.
Modbus is a communication protocol which uses RS485 interface. It allows to connect many different devices supporting the same protocol to NEURON controller unit. Then it can be easily programmed within the software supporting Modbus.
NEURON is CE certified. Products of this product line are in accordance with the following standards:
