The RIO-47142 includes an internal switch with two Ethernet ports for daisy-chaining multiple RIO units. This allows management of an unlimited number of inputs and outputs without an external Ethernet switch.
Each RIO unit is self-contained and provides 32 optically isolated digital inputs and outputs, and 16 analog inputs and outputs. RIOs are intelligent input and output controllers that use a RISC processor for fast handling of I/O & logic. There is on-board non-volatile memory and multitasking for simultaneous execution of up to four programs. Other standard features include variables and arrays, PID process control loops, timers, counters, web interface, email alerts, data logging, and the ability to read position and temperature sensors.
It measures 3.88 in. x 4.26 in. x 1.30 in.
