Rocklin, CA— Galil Motion Control now offers their new RIO-471×2 Pocket PLC that provides expanded program memory, variables, arrays and programmable PID control loops. The new RIO-471×2 provides 400 lines of program memory and 254 symbolic variables which are twice as many as the standard RIO. It also offers six programmable PID loops compared to two. The price for the RIO-471×2 with memory expansion is $50 higher than the standard RIO-471×0.
In addition, the RIO-471×2 provides an intelligent, low-cost and compact solution for handling I/O. Each RIO unit contains 8 analog inputs, 8 analog outputs, 16 optically isolated inputs, and 16 optically isolated outputs. Multiple RIO units can be networked together for unlimited I/O expansion.
A fast, 32-bit processor and non-volatile memory for storing programs are part of the new RIO. Features include arithmetic and logical processing, process control loops, data logging, counters and timers.
The RIO allows communication via both Ethernet and RS232. It also supports Modbus TCP/IP as both master and slave, a web interface and the ability to send email alerts. It can easily interface to HMIs, PLCs, motion controllers and other I/O devices. The RIO is simple to program with Galil’s intuitive two-letter commands or Ladder Interface Software.
The compact RIO controller measures only 3.88” x 4.26” x 1.30” and comes packaged in a metal enclosure with D-type connectors for convenient interface. It receives power from Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or from an external supply of 18V – 36V DC. LED indicators provide a convenient display of all digital inputs and outputs.
