Galil's New RIO-47142 Pocket PLC with Two Ethernet Ports

Galil Motion Control, an industry leader in motion control technology, is announcing the latest product in their RIO Pocket PLC Series. The new RIO-47142 includes an internal switch with two Ethernet ports for daisy-chaining multiple RIO units. This allows management of an unlimited number of inputs and outputs without an external Ethernet switch.

Galil Motion Control, an industry leader in motion control technology, is announcing the latest product in their RIO Pocket PLC Series. The new RIO-47142 includes an internal switch with two Ethernet ports for daisy-chaining multiple RIO units. This allows management of 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 and intelligent solution for programmable I/O control. "Now, with two Ethernet ports instead of just one, the RIO-47142 reduces system costs and speeds system set-up when multiple controllers are required", said Ann Keffer, Director of Marketing. "The RIO provides a cost-effective method for adding inputs and outputs to a variety of motion and non-motion applications."

Each RIO unit is self-contained and provides 32 optically isolated digital inputs and outputs, and 16 analog inputs and outputs. RIOs are intelligent input and output controllers that use a powerful RISC processor for fast handling of I/O & logic. There is 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.

The RIO controller can be programmed using Galil's easy-to-use, two-letter language which is standard for all Galil motion and I/O controllers. Software is also available for converting a Relay Ladder Logic program (often used by PLC programmers) into code for input into the RIO controller.

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.

The RIO-47142 is $415 US in single quantity and $305 US in quantities of 100. Delivery is <2 weeks.
