    Din Relay controller

    Hi all,
    Long time reader first post. I have a pond / irrigation project that I am putting the automation part together. Due to space constraints I am looking to do all the electronics (power supply, PC, larger pump relays, terminal blocks etc... ) in DIN rail fashion.

    After a lot of searching I am stuck at finding a suitable relay controller. I know many of you will mention the VM8090 but even in the DIN case they have I am looking for something more compact and industrial looking (the control panel will be on display of sorts).

    Something like this controller is almost ideal. I do not like the ethernet (would prefer serial) and a little leery about support from the manufacture. Mostly due to them not mentioning any comparability with the many serial port driver adapters (like the ones that will make a USB port appear like a serial port to the software).

    So I turn to others to see if they are aware of something similar.

    I would like a regular relay rather than solid state, but might be able to work solid state. I am not running the pumps off this but it would control other DIN mounted relays.

    Thanks for any input in advance.
