Ethernet I/O Module

EtherIO24 Now in stock! The new EtherIO24 gives you the capability to distribute digital control equipment anywhere you can reach with an Ethernet cable or wireless network.

The EtherIO24 is supported by a family of peripheral I/O boards that make connections a snap.

I Love Math

Physics Class Force Vector Drawing
I started Hobby Engineering because I wanted to help people get interested in engineering, starting with my son who was in middle school at the time. Ten years later he is a professional engineer ... and I'm not. I've wanted to be an engineer since at least high school, but find the math pretty challenging. I haven't let that stop me from trying. I hope you don't let your challenges stop you either.
