 +====== How to buy ======
 +
 +Some products avaible for purchase on [[https://www.tindie.com/stores/pontech/|Tindie]] for all other products (including ones not listed on this web page) contact [[mailto:sales@pontech.com|sales@pontech.com]]
 +
 +{{:quick240-logo.png?direct|}}
 +
 +Inspired by [[http://arduino.cc/|Arduino(tm)]], [[http://chipkit.net/|chipKIT(tm)]] technology in an industrial form factor.
 +
 +====== Quick Product Overview ======
 +{{:quick-240-iso_ethernet_with_4_cards_25percent_alpha.png?300|}}{{:quick-240-iso_rail-ab_with_4_cards_25percent_alpha.png?300|}}
 +
 +Quick(tm) (Quick Universal Industrial Control Kard) is based on [[http://chipkit.net/|chipKIT(tm)]] open source platform.  The Quick240 is designed for industrial automation systems where traditionally a ladder logic PLC might have been used. Since the Quick240 is an open platform for industrial automation it effectively extends the traditional life of a similarly proprietary.  This is achieved in several ways.
 +
 +  * Easier maintenance after the traditional "end of life" of an equivalent proprietary device since the tools are open. 
 +  * Devices can utilize new technology developed for the open source community that maybe slow or never come to a proprietary tool.  
 +
 +The initial adapters of the Quick240 will be [[http://chipkit.net/|chipKIT(tm)]] and [[http://arduino.cc/|Arduino(tm)]] users that need to implement industrial automation solutions. Quick(tm) allows for a polished package that presents a high end image rather than something that looks like a hobby or prototype. Quick(tm) is based on open source technologies so tools obsolescent is mitigated and entry cost is lower.
 +
 +The result is an Open Source PLC based on chipKIT technology.
 +
 +====== Under the Hood ======
 +{{:quick-240_motherboard_connectors.png|}}
 +
 +The Quick system consists of a motherboard (Quick240) that has a Microchip (PIC32MX795F512L) microcontroller, high voltage (24V In) DC-DC converter that outputs 5V and a 3.3V linear regulator and seven Kard(tm) slots.  All of this is housed in a sleek DIN rail mountable plastic housing.
 +
 +Kard slots allow insertion of low cost signal conditioning circuits for interfacing the Microchip device to the industrial world. The board Drive Kard shown below will turn a single slot into a drive circuit for four relays or solenoid.
