Low Cost Interface to Allen-Bradley Remote I/O
Drive A-B RIO as a Master OR Respond to A-B RIO as a Slave
An internal interface to the Rockwell Automation (Allen-Bradley) remote I/O protocol is now available for SotPLC Corporation's Smart SoftPLC and Smart Gateway products. This interface provides the lowest cost, most comprehensive connectivity to Allen-Bradley Remote I/O (eg: 1771, 1747 (SLC-500), Flex, and other compatible networks) on the market..

As a Remote I/O Master, users can upgrade existing A-B PLC systems without replacing or re-wiring the I/O, by exchanging the A-B PLC CPU with a Smart SoftPLC controller. Users can even re-use most (and many times all) of the existing logic and program documentation with SoftPLC's automated application conversion utilities. Up to 32 racks are supported.

As a Remote I/O Slave, a SoftPLC Smart Gateway can act as a bridge between an A-B PLC and many other devices on other protocols (not supported by A-B PLC's) OR can add SoftPLC's Tealware I/O to an A-B PLC system. A single slave can appear as multiple racks to the A-B PLC.
