The RIO-47100 pocket PLC, an intelligent input and output controller for the ethernet from Galil, communicates with many devices including the company’s DMC-40×0 ethernet motion controllers.
The RIO-47100 contains a fast RISC processor for handling I/O logic and is programmed using the Rocklin, Calif.-based motion controller company’s easy-to-use, two-letter command language.
Each RIO-47100 unit is self-contained with, among other features, eight analogue inputs and outputs, 16 optically isolated inputs, eight high-power isolated outputs and eight low-power isolated outputs.
Housed in a 3.9- x 4.3- x 1.3-in. package, this compact PLC has a powerful RISC processor for fast I/O handling and includes ±10 V analog I/O, program memory with multitasking, PID process control loops, timers, counters, web interface, e-mail alerts, data logging, Ethernet 100Base-T, and RS232.
