    All the usual disclaimers apply, but Q1 looks good.

    Here's a teaser...dual AXCAMs (8 point cams describing SIN and COS) following an S-curve on virtual axis 0...running in a prototype HSIO module.

      Are there any plans to release an RTD module? That would be the last piece of the puzzle for me to shift from the 06 to a BRX.

        Definitely.

          I am glad for the clarification. I can't get any traction on switching over to the BRX platform until there are RTD modules. External RTD transmitters are not a viable solution in our case.

            Any idea of a time frame for RTD to BRX? Would it be built in to the existing analog channels or a module addon?

              It will be an additional module. There is not a specific time frame for launch just yet, but we are working on it, so hopefully soon™.

                Is it a big enough system to use a 205 or Terminator Do-More? Or a BRX with one of those two with an EBC or with generic Modbus I/O blocks like Protos-X?

                  Any news yet for RTD for the BRX? Will it be built in to a base module or only as an add on?

                    We are working on an RTD expansion module, but it isn't ready for prime time just yet.

                      Any news on the RTD front? I would really like to shift us away from DirectSoft based PLC's and into Do-More. That 0.01 sec limit on the OFFDTMR is killing me. I can at least set a longer constant in Do-More. Can't shoehorn a Do-More rack into my 06 space though-need a BRX with the RTD module.

                          I too I'm anxiously waiting the RTD module. This will be a significant cost reduction from using the Terminator Series.
                          Will there also be a thermistor card being released?

                            Yes. And soon.

                              Will it come preconfigured for a specific list of thermistors? Or user configurable via constants, possibly via module WY? Or just read in ohms and the user does the conversion to temperature in ladder?

                                The module (whole module, not per channel) can be configured for 1.8K, 2252, 3K, 5K, 10K-AN, or 10K-CP, through the module config.
