Stand Alone I/O Controller with Ethernet & RS-232
Intelligent, Remote Ethernet I/O Controller
The RIO-47x00 is an intelligent input and output controller for the Ethernet and can communicate with multiple devices including Galil's DMC-40x0 Ethernet motion controllers. The RIO-47x00 contains a fast RISC processor for handling I/O logic and is programmed using Galil's easy-to-use, two-letter command language. The on-board intelligence of the RIO-47x00 frees the host for other tasks. Each RIO-47x00 unit is self-contained with numerous analog and digital I/O including: 8 analog inputs, 8 analog outputs, 16 optically isolated inputs, 8 highpower isolated outputs and 8 low-power isolated outputs. Multiple RIO-47x00 units can be distributed on an Ethernet network allowing I/O expansion. Like all Galil controllers, programming the RIO-47x00 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as Galil Tools for servo tuning and analysis, and an ActiveX Tool Kit for Visual Basic users.
