Exciting New Options for the RIO-47300

In December 2013, Galil will release five new exciting options for the RIO-47300. These new options consist of three encoder input add-on boards:   -QUAD, -BiSS and -SSI and two expanded digital I/O add-on boards.

The RIO-47300, released in January 2013, is a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) with 48 high-power optically isolated digital I/O, 16 user configurable analog I/O and screw terminals (see Table 2 specifications).  The digital I/O option adds 24 more inputs or outputs to the Rio-47300 bringing the total available I/O to 88, and the cost per I/O down to approximately $5.50 for quantities of 100 or more!  The encoder input option allows the RIO-47300 to read up to two position sensors.

Description of Quadrature, BiSS and SSI

  • Quadrature - Incremental encoder
  • SSI - Standard serial absolute encoder protocol
  • BiSS - Standard serial absolute encoder protocol
