Galil’s RIO-47142 Pocket PLC features two Ethernet ports for daisy chain configuration.
Galil Motion Control announced its RIO-47142, the latest addition to the company’s RIO Pocket PLC Series. The Pocket PLC includes an internal switch with two Ethernet ports for daisy-chaining multiple RIO units, allowing for an unlimited number of inputs and outputs without an external Ethernet switch. On the market for five years, Galil’s RIO Pocket PLC series provides a compact solution for programmable I/O control.
Each RIO unit is self-contained and provides 32 optically isolated digital inputs and outputs, and 16 analog inputs and outputs. RIOs controllers use a RISC processor for handling of I/O & logic, plus on-board non-volatile memory and multitasking for simultaneous execution of up to four programs. Other standard features include variables and arrays, PID process control loops, timers, counters, web interface, email alerts, data-logging, and the ability to read position and temperature sensors.
Measuring just 3.88” x 4.26” x 1.30”, the compact RIO is packaged in a metal enclosure and provides D-type connectors for convenient interface. The RIO receives power from an external supply of 18V – 36V DC. LED indicators provide a convenient display of all digital inputs and outputs.
