Abstract : A universal modular controller for controlling remote events over short or long time periods is described. The controller includes a clock, a counter and one or more decoder and logic networks. The clock may have a pulse rate range of from a few microseconds to more than an hour. the counter preferably includes four counter stages. Each of the decoder and logic networks is connected to the data output of the counter stages and each decoder and logic network includes a programmable switching and logic network. This makes it possible to provide long and short duration continuous signals as well as individual or repeating pulse signals for control of various types of devices or loads. The controller may control one or many devices, in a simple or complex manner and over short or long time periods.
