Feature Comparisons

The following tables shows the main features of the list boards to give an overview of the most appropriate ones for your situation.

All of the DC and AC controllers shown (first two tables) have integrated controller & output drivers.

SSRs are listed in a separate table, as they require a separate controller to drive them. More SSRs and suitable controllers will be added soon.
