Input/Output Controller Applications

Marlin’s I/O controllers are used on mobile equipment for multiple types of applications to functionally control the entire machine or to only control specific functions. They are typically used in a network of CAN bus controllers either as a main controller programmed with custom functional logic or as a remote I/O module working in conjunction with a main controller. They are also frequently used in stand-alone applications where CAN bus communication is not required.
