Tibbo Project System (TPS) is a highly configurable, affordable, & innovative automation platform. It is ideal for home, building, warehouse, & production floor automation projects, as well as data collection, distributed control, industrial computing, & device connectivity applications.
Suppliers of traditional “control boxes” (embedded computers, PLCs, remote automation and I/O products, etc.) typically offer a wide variety of models differing in their I/O capabilities. Four serial ports & six relays. Two serial ports & eight relays. One serial port, four relays, & two sensor inputs. These lists go on and on, yet never seem to contain just the right mix of I/O functions you are looking for.
Rather than offering a large number of models, Tibbo Technology takes a different approach: TPS utilizes Tibbits – miniature electronic blocks that implement specific I/O functions. Need three RS232 ports? Plug in exactly three RS232 Tibbits! Need two relays? Use a relay Tibbit. This module-based approach saves you money by allowing you to precisely define the features you want in your automation controller.
