Next generation Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)  platform hardware

Zero Energy Networks (ZEN) laboratory has designed and developed a next generation Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)  platform hardware.  Two product prototypes were built using this platform. A medical grade ventilator for COVID-19 patients and a Digital Twin for a temperature controlled chamber; constructed from free and open source software.
