    I understand that Echelon is phasing out production of their LonPoint I/O modules next year. Something about the cost of becoming RoHs compliant. While I can likely integrate I/O cheaper with other devices, I will sorely miss the translators, analog function blocks, the PID, and especially the digital encoders! Wouldn't it be nice if Echelon built a device that just included these functions forget the I/O!

    Yeah I agree, they often came in handy. Have you had a look at how much of this functionality is in the i.LON100?

    Oh sure. I love the ilon100 translators and analog functions. You can do a lot with them. Especially high/low/averaging and breaking down structured network variables. I don't think the iLON can provide the feature of the LonPoint analog function block that allows you to easily and quickly create reset schedules using 2 inputs. The LonPoint functions were so simple and easy to use (with the free plug-ins) - I never seem to have enough of them. I hope Echelon will rethink their plans.

    they cost too much for the I/O.
    That's why they don't sell many.

    other than that I like them. Hardware is a nice design idea.
