This "expansion" assembly provides the means to expand the I/O capacity of the COMMANDER Base assembly in increments (files) of 14 I/O function cards.
The cardfile assembly includes a non-intelligent motherboard which extends the SimpleBUSS in a daisy-chain fashion via an interconnecting ribbon cable. Up to three Expansion assemblies may be connected to any particular Base assembly, for a total capacity of 56 functional cards. Although 56 I/O cards are possible, the maximum number of I/O point types have upper limits, depending upon the firmware version implemented.
