    Linux CNC, what controller / breakout board is most flexible?


    I'm considering Linux CNC over Centroid OAK for my VMC retrofit/upgrade.

    I need several inputs (tool changer and I want hardkeys for most common functions), and some outputs for PLC functions.

    I wonder what MESA (?) board combo to use, that gives me most flexibility?

    Would it be smart to use one "bigger" board in the control cabinet, and a "smaller" one in the control stand panel to connect all buttons and indicators?

    Can all units, PC, control board, "slave board" be connected via ethernet?

    Br, Magnar.
