Collection: Extenders

Extenders and Smart Extenders are modules that enhance the functionality of our Chameleon NetPLC Controllers. The Smart Extenders are directly controlled by their own integrated microcontroller (typically an RP2040) and are pre-programmed for their function.  All modules, Controllers, Extenders and Smart Extenders, look like C++ objects to the user's code and have properties and methods when accessed via ChamNet regardless of their place in the network. Smart Extenders can generate Event messages almost eliminating the need for polling and simulate a multithreaded environment.
