The KISS-BOX I/O8 CardCage can hold up to 8 standard Kiss-Box I/O Cards. Input signals received on input cards will be translated to Ethernet UDP/IP or TCP/IP and send to the network. Network messages received from the network are translated to output signals on the selected output cards. Any compliant 3th party software can be used to process these messages and thus "read" or "write" standard in and outputs (like relays, contact-closures, analog signals) via a standard Ethernet network. A range of I/O cards is available. The I/O8 CardCage can be controlled also over ArtNet and MIDI Show Control protocols.
