How many sensors can a Zettlex electronics sensor handle?

The maximum number of sensors per set of electronics is determined by the maximum permissible response time per sensor. If we consider the example of a Zettlex sensor taking 1 millisecond per measurement and a maximum response time of 250 milliseconds then with a simple multiplexing scheme the maximum number of sensors is 250.

This number can be increased with a more sophisticated multiplexing algorithm, for example, sampling the less frequently used or less important sensors less frequently.

A Zettlex Electronics Module can also handle inputs from other elements such as switches.
