Galil is pleased to introduce it's first EtherCAT Slave I/O Module
- Posted on November 12, 2015
The RIO-574x0 is a compact, cost-effective EtherCAT I/O slave module. It is packed with digital and analog I/O to be used remotely in an EtherCAT automation system. Although the RIO-57000 can be used with a generic EtherCAT master, it is designed to integrate seamlessly into an EtherCAT system with Galil's DMC-500x0 EtherCAT master.
Each RIO-574x0 has 16 optoisolated digital inputs and 16 high-power, 500mA sourcing, optoisolated digital outputs. The RIO-57420 is expanded to include 8 analog inputs and 8 analog outputs, both configurable in the ranges of 0-5V, 0-10V, ±5V, or ±10V.
The RIO-574x0 can be configured over USB in a few steps using Galil's software and intuitive english-like 2 letter commands.
