The RIO-574×0 consists of digital and analog I/O to be used remotely in an EtherCAT automation system. Although the RIO-574×0 can be used with any generic EtherCAT master, it is designed to integrate seamlessly into an EtherCAT system with Galil’s DMC-500×0 EtherCAT master.
All RIO-574×0 have 16 opto-isolated digital inputs and 16 high-power (500 mA sourcing) opto-isolated digital outputs. The RIO-57420 also includes eight analog inputs (4 to 20 mA option available) and eight analog outputs, both configurable in the ranges of 0 to 5 V, 0 to 10 V, ±5 V or ±10 V (12-bit standard, 16-bit option available). All I/O are accessible through convenient screw terminals. LED indicators are provided for all digital I/O points.
The controller’s dimensions are 4.24 × 4.81 × 2.35 in. It can be configured over USB in a few steps using Galil’s software with intuitive, English-like, two-letter commands.
