Rocklin, CA–Galil Motion Control offers their new Ladder Interface Software for converting
Relay Ladder Logic programs into optimized, deterministic code for its compact RIO-471×0 programmable logic controller (PLC).
The software has an easy-to-use graphical interface that provides object types for
contacts, coils, control relays, boxes (including timers, counters and data manipulation) and analog I/O. It also features a command box for specifying any valid Galil two-letter command. The Ladder Interface Software generates an optimized RIO program from the specified objects in the logic diagram. It also automatically adds determinism to the RIO program.
Additionally, the Ladder Interface Software includes standard mathematical and
logical operators including:
• Equal, Not Equal, Less than, Greater than
• AND, OR (normally open or normally closed)
• Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, Increment, Decrement
• Shift or rotate accumulator left or right
Galil’s RIO-471×0 Intelligent PLC provides 32 digital I/O and 16 analog I/O in a
low-cost, small 3.9″ x 4.3″ x 1.3″ package. An on-board RISC processor allows for quick I/O handling. Other features include Power-over-Ethernet, program memory with
multitasking, process control PID loops, timers, counters, Ethernet10/100Base-T and
RS232. Multiple RIO units can be networked for handling an unlimited number of I/O.
The RIO provides a web-interface and email capability.
