Pocket PLC has 400 lines of program memory, 254 symbolic variables

Galil Motion Control has a new RIO Pocket PLC. RIO-47202 Pocket PLC provides 400 lines of program memory and 254 symbolic variables, twice as many as the standard RIO. It offers six programmable PID loops (up from two) and is ideal for customers that require more space for application programs providing an intelligent, low-cost and compact solution for handling I/O.

Galil Motion Control, developer of the RIO Pocket PLC series for intelligent and cost-effective I/O handling, now offers the RIO-47202 Pocket PLC with screw-terminals and expanded program memory, variables, arrays, and programmable PID control loops. The PLC 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.”

Each unit of the intelligent, low-cost and compact solution for handling I/O 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 Ethernet and RS-232 and supports Modbus TCP/IP as master and slave, a web interface, and can send email alerts. It easily interfaces 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. It measures only 7.19 x 3.52-in. 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 18 V - 36 V dc. LED indicators provide a convenient display of all digital inputs and outputs.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
