Title: Bus based timed input output module

Abstract

Described herein are features related to a bus based timed input output module (TIO) for use in control systems of physical systems, particularly where the physical systems are safety critical systems. When the TIO is powered on, one or more operations are performed by the TIO, wherein the one or more operations, when performed by the TIO: 1) cause the TIO to be non-functional, thereby preventing the TIO from improperly or accidentally activating a Component in communication with the TIO; 2) clears the TIO of previous operations (if any); and 3) facilitates compatibility of the TIO with an arbitrary Component.
