Announcing Galil's RIO-471xx Pocket PLC with Ethernet
Rocklin, CA - Galil's Pocket PLC is smart, compact, low-cost, and packed with I/O - 32 digital and 16 analog I/O in a 3.9 x 4.3 x 1.3 in. package. The RIO-471xx features a powerful RISC processor for fast I/O handling and is economically priced at just $295 US in single quantity and $195 US/ea in 100pc quantities.
The RIO 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.
Each RIO-471xx unit is self-contained with numerous analog and digital I/O including: 8 analog inputs, 8 analog outputs, 16 optically isolated inputs, 8 high-power isolated outputs and 8 low-power isolated outputs. Multiple RIO-471xx units can be distributed on an Ethernet network allowing unlimited I/O expansion.
Like all Galil controllers, programming the RIO-471xx is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as GalilTools for programming, and a Ladder Interface Software tool for converting standard relay ladder logic into Galil code.
