Product Announcement from Galil Motion Control
Galil Motion Control, developer of the RIO Pocket PLC series for intelligent and cost-effective I/O handling, now offers their RIO-47202 Pocket PLC that provides screw-terminals and expanded program memory, variables, arrays and programmable PID control loops. The RIO-47202 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 RIO-47202 is ideal for customers that require more space for application programs or need to use additional variables or arrays in their programs," said Lisa Wade, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Galil Motion Control. "It also offers more PID process loops, which is ideal for temperature control. In addition, the screw terminals of the RIO-47202 are convenient for prototyping allowing discrete wires from various I/O devices to connect directly to the RIO." The RIO-47202 provides an intelligent, low-cost and compact solution for handling I/O. Each RIO unit contains 8 analog inputs, 16 optically isolated inputs, and 16 optically isolated outputs. Multiple RIO units can be networked together for unlimited I/O expansion. The RIO has a fast, 32-bit processor and non-volatile memory for storing user programs. 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 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-47202 controller measures only 7.19" x 3.52" and includes a metal cover and DIN rail mounting tray. It provides screw terminals for easy interface to external devices with discrete wires. The RIO 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. Available for immediate delivery, the RIO-47202 is $395 in single quantity and $295 in quantities of 100.

(www.galilmc.com) Privately held and profitable for over 100 consecutive quarters, Galil Motion Control, Inc. was founded in 1983 by Jacob Tal and Wayne Baron. Galil became the first company to produce a microprocessor-based servo motor controller without tachometer feedback. Since then, Galil has continued to advance motion control technology and has found industry-leading acceptance with over 500,000 controllers successfully installed worldwide. Various applications include machines for the medical, semiconductor, machine tool, food processing, and textile industries. Recently, Galil has introduced several motion and I/O controllers for the Ethernet including the high-speed Accelera motion controllers and the RIO Pocket PLC series.
